  • 1/2 c. fat-free sour cream

Preheat oven to 350° F. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a bowl beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Set aside.

In another large bowl, combine mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, sour cream, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Beat for about 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the potato mixture.

Gently spoon the mixture into the baking dish. Bake for 1 hour or until slightly puffed and golden. Serve immediately.
