I have never been able to make tapioca pudding that calls for beaten egg whites successfully and most all recipes call for it. I finally found this recipe and it is the BEST we have ever tasted--so creamy and rich and thick and dense. Very yummy. The original calls for a vanilla bean, but it can be subbed for vanilla extract and still tastes amazing.
I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone raved. The original recipe is from Cooking Light but I made a few changes. The original recipe calls for fontina and gruyere cheese, but use what ever cheeses you like or have on hand. I used provalone and emantale Swiss and threw in a little smoked gouda. Other potatoes can be substituted, but the golds add that extra buttery flavor/texture without extra butter. mmmm
these are super tasty and have a slightly hot aftertaste.. wich i love. since the first prepararation is similar to the glazed popcorn recipe #17061 i threw in some popcorn with the nuts and it was also deeelicious. there are 2 ways to prepare.
