- 2 tablespoons butter
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Beat egg yolks with mashed potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
- Add sour cream and ham.
- Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into potato mixture.
- Place in a buttered casserole, dot with butter and bake 30 minutes.
Lorac, bless your grandmother! I just stumbled upon this recipe this morning during a "search." I was craving a mashed potato type dish, and this one caught my eye so I whipped it up for lunch. I had to use instant mashed potatoes but they tasted like homemade with the addition of the seperated eggs and ham chunks! I got really decadent and sprinkled on a layer of shredded cheddar cheese during the last ten minutes of baking. This one will be made often by yours truly!
this was delicious and fluffy in texture - and Sooooo easy to make! this recipe's a keeper!
Total comfort food and great way to use up some of those holiday left overs. Simple, subtle, and delicious. Even my picky SO loved this one. I'll be making this again!
