"This recipe is from the "Low-Fat Cooking" cookbook of the Australian Womens Weekly Cookbook series & was described as suitable for diabetics. DH & I would normally also use garlic & lemon pepper, so I showed them as optional adds. This recipe assumes the potatoes are already cooked, so the time does not include time to bake or microwave them. Enjoy!"

Step 1

Combine cottage cheese with onion, parmesan cheese, herbs & opt adds (if using).

Step 2

Cut a deep cross in each potato & gently press sides to open the cross. Fill & mound herbed cottage cheese equally among the 6 potatoes & serve immediately.

Step 3

NOTE - If you want a smooth texture or simply want to disguise the cottage cheese from your kids, use a stick blender to puree it until smooth & then mix in the herbs & seasonings. They will probably think it's the best sour cream they've ever tasted.

Great potato topper. I did the garlic and lemon pepper, and blended it as suggested. This would make a great lowfat dip for raw vegies, also, in the blended version.
