Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Poke the potatoes a few times with a fork. Rub the potatoes with olive oil and salt. Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake until tender, about 1 hour.
  3. Peel one of the potatoes and mash with a fork in a large bowl. Cut the other 2 potatoes in half and using a spoon, scoop out the flesh and add to the bowl, leaving ¼-inch of potato on the skin.
  4. Mix the mashed potatoes with cottage cheese, ⅓; cup cheddar, chives, salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning. On the baking sheet, fill the hollow potatoes evenly with the mashed potato mixture, and sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup of cheddar cheese.
  5. Return to the oven and bake for 15 minutes until well browned. Serve warm.

Chef Tips

For a heavier, more calorie rich dish, substitute whole milk ricotta for the cottage cheese.
