Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

A very good side dish to a family barbecue we had over the past weekend. We added some chopped green onions as well as some fresh grated parmesan which, I believe, added a bit of zzzhoooosh to this Country Cottage Potatoes dish. The man of the house wanted to add some cayenne pepper. Perhaps next time I will let him. Lol!

I've never heard of using cottage cheese! I will definitely start no, however.
