Advice

These cottage cheese-topped potatoes taste so much nicer if you don't serve them straight from the oven. Wait for about ten minutes for maximum flavour. If you think no dinner is complete without a nice chunk of meat, before you top the potatoes with cheese and cream you can add about 50-100 grams slightly fried pancetta or bacon slices, sliced chorizo, salami or ham to make this great casserole taste even nicer to meat-lovers.
