Mashed Potato Puff
A mashed potato puff is somewhat like making twice baked potatoes in a pan! Cook and mash potatoes, the add remaining ingredients and bake in a casserole dish. Great side dish!
4 medium potatoes (1-1/4 pound), Yukon Gold if available
2/3 cup fat free milk
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, separated
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
OR 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 375-degrees. Prepare a 1-1/2-quart casserole with nonstick pan spray.
Peel, quarter, and boil the potatoes until tender. Drain and mash with 1/3-cup of the milk, the margarine, and salt.
In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks with the remaining 1/3-cup milk. Add the egg mixture, onion, parsley, and cheese to the potatoes; mix well.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the potatoes. Turn into the prepared casserole.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve immediately.
