Posted in answer to a message board request. A good side dish when you want to dress up "plain ol' mashed potatoes". Seasonings can be altered to suit your taste.
- Boil potatoes in lightly salted water for 15 minutes or until tender.
- Drain and mash well.
- Add butter, nutmeg, egg yolks, light cream, salt and pepper and mix well.
- Fold in egg whites.
- Place potato mixture into a greased casserole pan (large enough hold all the mixture, but be only 2/3 full).
- Bake in preheated 375°F oven for about 20 minutes (until puffed and heated through).
- Serve immediately.
