Make Ahead Hearty Stuffed Potatoes

Tonight we had tri-tip for dinner... again :). These make ahead hearty stuffed potatoes are a wonderful side dish. If you are a fan of twice baked potatoes, you'll love this dish. I first had these potatoes about 5 years ago when my neighbor, Diane, made them for us. My husband thought they were just about the best thing he had ever eaten.

The Ingredients

2 medium baking potatoes
1/2 cup cottage cheese
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon salt (scant)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 hard-cooked egg, chopped

At Ten O'Clock

Wash potatoes. Rub skins with butter (optional). Roll in foil, puncture each with a knife. Bake potatoes at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Cut the potatoes in half. Scoop out the insides, leaving a thin layer of potato in each skin.

In a bowl, mash potato pulp with cottage cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, dill salt and pepper. Stir in 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and egg. Spoon into potato shells. Top with additional shredded cheddar cheese. Place in a baking dish. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Before Serving

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until heated through.

Family Approval

This potato dish is a fantastic variation to the traditional twice baked potato. My husband totally loves it! It's very tasty, and unique--absolutely yummy!
