  • Yield: 2 servings for post exercise recovery - about 4-5 appetizer servings 1x


  • 20 mini potatoes that are about 1-inch in diameter (about 10 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • Optional toppings such as: roasted red pepper, pickled jalapeno slices, avocado, olives


  1. Heat oven to 425-degrees. Spray large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Make 4-5 vertical slices in each potato cutting almost all the way through the potato – but not quite.
  3. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss gently. Arrange on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender – but not mushy. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  5. Divide cottage cheese among potatoes. Top with toppings if desired.
