Cheese Puffed Mashed Potatoes

A friend gave me an old back issue of the Grit magazine from 2006. I always go to the recipe section before I read anything else. This time I found this little gem for mashed potatoes. This is going to be on our Christmas table!  I added the cheese.

  • 1 Egg, separated
  • 2 cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Butter
  • 1/2 (or more) grated Cheese of your choice. I like Cheddar or Gruyère

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter 2 quart baking dish.

Beat egg whites until stiff. Beat egg yolk until light and creamy. Fold egg white and yolk into the mashed potatoes. Heap into the baking dish. COver with grated cheese and dot with butter. Bake for 30 minutes. Can be easily doubled for company.
