Cottage Potatoes Recipe

I am looking for a Cottage Potato Recipe. My Aunt used to make one that had potatoes, green peppers, cheese and bread crumbs. I keep finding recipes with cottage cheese but I don't believe that it had cottage cheese in it.

I just called my Mom last night to get this recipe. I haven't had it in 20 years.

She didn't have any amounts, but she said to dice and boil the potatoes, saute diced green pepper and onions. Mix with potatoes and a small jar of pimentos, a couple of handfuls of croutons and shredded Velveeta cheese. Put in a casarole dish and pour a stick of melted butter on top. Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

I think I found the one that you are looking for, Jen. It's a Pennsylvania thing.

Cottage Potatoes

10-12 potatoes (small to medium well with Yukon Gold or Red)

1 green pepper, chopped

1 med. onion, chopped

1/2 lb. Velveeta Cheese, cubed

2 cups Cheese and Garlic (or cheese and onion) croutons

1/2 lb. butter (yeah, that is right!)

1/2 cup milk

Boil potatoes; cool, peel and cube.

In a large bowl, mix potatoes, onion, green pepper, cheese and croutons. Season to taste with salt/pepper.

Put mixture in 9x13" pan. If making the night before, stop here.

Pour 1/2 lb. melted butter over mixture, then 1/2 cup milk.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
