I made this for Christmas dinner trying to duplicate the Cottage Potatoes that my Mom used to make. PLEASE instead of listing "12 large potatoes" put how many pounds of potatoes to use. I used 12 large Russet potatoes and it made so much that I had to at least double the rest of the ingredients. It turned out spot on, but it made so much!
Delicious! However, it's just the two of us, so I used 3 large russets. Since this does not have to be an "exact" recipe because it's not a cake -- I used about the same amounts for the other ingredients in the recipe -- except just half a green pepper. My batch filled a 13 x 9 pan. I didn't have cornflakes for the topping, so I toasted panko breadcrumbs in butter in a pan. The next night we decided to heat some up in the waffle iron! Really good and crunchy!
Amen to Kevin
This is a similar recipe that my grandmother gave me 30 years ago. We make it slightly different we use fresh parsley chopped up and we omit the green peppers. We use one cup of milk and one cup of butter. And we don't cook the potatoes until tender we cook them just before it's done that way when it is baked in the oven the potatoes don't get overcooked or mushy that's why we add more milk to the recipe. I just went on here to check and see if my recipe was out there and it is. Everytime I tell people I make cottage potatoes I have no clue what I'm talking about. This is the best recipe
Just once I'd like to see a recipe that was sized for two people. All the recipes seem to be crowd sized.
Why do folks completely change a recipe when doing a review? I would think a review should be based on making the recipe as written.
I got this recipe from a friend 42 years ago! It is as delicious and easy today as it was then. It goes great with ham for Easter or with chicken, burger, ribs etc for cookouts. Also great for a pot luck dinner.
Let me tell you, for family meals ,of which people cook everyday, this kind of comfort food beats gourmet cooking everyday of the week.
