Potato Pie

This recipe comes courtesy of CIA-Cooking in an Apron. It seems like it would be a great side to any dinner and I think I could even get my toddler to eat it! Check out her site. There are some things that make me drool. No wonder my husband says food blogs are like my porn!


I've been making this recipe for years. I can't remember which message board I got it from off the internet years ago but whosever this recipe originated from...a HUGE THANK YOU! Its awesome and soo good. Potatoes are cooked, mashed and combined with cottage cheese, sour cream and a few other tasty ingredients. This unusual-but-delicious concoction is spooned into a prepared pie shell and baked until set. I usually serve it along side a main (meat) dish, but just liked the good ol' baked potato, it can stand on its own!!

Potato Pie

1 unbaked pie shell, deep dish
2 cups cottage cheese
2 eggs
2 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup scallions, sliced

Beat cottage cheese until smooth. Then beat in sour cream, potatoes, egges, salt and pepper. Stir in scallions. Pour into pie shell and sprinkle with cheese (optional). Bake @ 425*F for 50 minutes. Good hot or cold!
