These come from my vintage Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook, 1950 edition. You know, the one my mother's neighbour gave to her because "You need it worse than I do." True story.
Everyone loved these potatoes and they were simple enough to prepare. I went ahead and got all super-classy-n-stuff by sprinkling paprika on top before baking, but if that's too elitist for you, just go ahead and omit it. I know, garnishes are totally climb-y.
You Will Need:
Mashed potatoes (I used 4 large baking potatoes, boiled and mashed with 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup whole milk, salt and pepper)
2 eggs, separated
Paprika (if you're feeling exotic)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish.
Beat the egg whites until stiff. With a mixer, beat the yolks into the potatoes. Fold in the whites. Bake 30-40 minutes until browned on top.
