Potatoes Romanoff

Here is a crock pot version of this marvelous potato dish! I have to make it for my family for all special occasions or they feel cheated. Since there's always lots going on during special occasions, I like this method because you can get them set up and out of the way ahead of time, and you don't have to worry about fussy timing issues. It's one of our favorite dishes for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Potatoes Romanoff

6 large potatoes

2 c cottage cheese
1 c sour cream (regular or low-fat, but not fat-free)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 scallions, chopped
Green olives
Salt & pepper
8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded

Chop potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes, without peeling. Boil for 2-3 minutes until just slightly softened. Drain and place into slow cooker on low setting. Mix cottage cheese through cheddar cheese in the order listed. Mix with potatoes and heat gently. Too high a temp will turn the potatoes to mashed, and you want them to hold their shape so keep the heat low.
