Cheesy Smashed Potatoes with Yogourt & Chives

September, 2019

These scrumptious mashed potatoes are loaded with big flavour and heaps of—wait for it—protein! That’s right. Dry cottage cheese has 22 grams in every half-cup serving. And we added 2 cups!

  • 12 large potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly cracked pepper
  • 2 cups dry cottage cheese
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (medium or sharp)
  • 1 cup plain yogourt
  • Thinly sliced scallions (optional)

Boil the potatoes in lots of salty water until fork tender. Drain the water, and return the pot to the turned-off burner. Add the butter, milk, salt, pepper, cheeses and yogourt. Mash until smooth, then taste and adjust the salt to your liking. Stir in some sliced scallions to finish.
