Protein Packed Mashed Potatoes with Cottage Cheese

Mashed Potatoes with Cottage Cheese

I’ll admit, I barely know what cottage cheese tastes like. I buy it, put it in the fridge, and then my husband sits down and eats the whole tub with a spoon. In order to share this recipe I had to sneakily buy and mash potatoes during a baby nap. If Ryan had the chance he would have stolen the cheese with no regrets.

Good thing he didn’t, since I really needed to make mashed potatoes.  Chunky, cheesy, mashed potatoes.

Mashed Potatoes with Cottage Cheese

We are constantly in search of protein around here, I’m not sure why but I especially find my daughter and I are happier the more protein we have. With 30 grams of protein per cup, cottage cheese in the mashed potatoes is an easy way to sneak a little extra into our meals.

    My husband and I love cottage cheese in salads, baked goods and part of main dishes.
    But we found it irreplaceable as a base for cinnamon, used daily to control the body’s sugar level (diabetes).
