I made a potato casserole for our brunch. The only cheeses we had
handy were cottage cheese and a handful (1/4 cup or so) of the
emmenthaler/gruyere mixture from the fondon't.  Also, I had no milk,
so I did what I sometimes do (but rarely admit) and used water with a
bit of fat (mayo or butter) mixed in.

2 large russet potatoes, sliced thinly
1 cup cottage cheese
1 large red onion, sliced
1/2 cup water with 1 T mayo whisked in
salt and pepper
a handful of grated cheese

Preheat oven to 375F.  Mix all except the grated cheese in a large
bowl.  Put in a buttered casserole. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Cover
the casserole and cook for 45 minutes.

Ooh, sounds yummy.  The cottage cheese probably provided some
creaminess.

Yeah, and it still had that crusty brown top that I love in potato
casseroles. I just had the last of it. Yummy.
