Reviews for Baked Mashed Potatoes
"I've made this for years. Delicious make-ahead dish."
"I made these last year for Thanksgiving and i will be making them again this year great make ahead mashed we love them."
"I have been asked to bring this many times. Everyone is surprised by the cottage cheese. I'm glad I tried it."
"This recipe was wonderful I am having it for Thanksgiving this year it will help save time because I can make it the day before plus it got a thumbs up from my whole family thanks for sharing."
"I have always made my mashed potatoes with cottage cheese instead of cream cheese. It gives them a creamy flavor, but not so heavy."
"This mashed potato recipe was very good and a nice change from the classic twice baked potato casserole. My family didn't notice the cottage cheese and I felt that it was a yummy addition. However, the casserole was a little runny so I did add two extra potatoes and cooked the casserole for about 20 minutes extra. I will make this again"
"I loved these potatoes!!!! I added cream cheese also and family loved them...had no idea there was cottage cheese in them and I'll never tell so they will continue to eat them...so good!!!"
"Question: How far ahead have you made the potatoes? Also do Red potatoes or Russet potatoes taste better in this recipe? Does anyone know if the leftovers can be frozen? Thanks in advance"
"Unfortunately this was not a hit with my children. They could taste the cottage cheese and I had to cover it with the sauce from Porcupine Meatballs just to get them to eat it."
"Love these potatoes! The men in the family always scrape the dish clean, even my son who won't normally eat cottage cheese."
"These are delicious. I thought cottage cheese in mashed potatoes wouldn't be very good but I didn't even know it was there. Great with Porcupine Meatballs."
"Need to try this one !"
