Not Your Everyday Potatoes

Lillian Schuttpelz of Sioux City, Iowa, wrote in asking if someone has a recipe for mashed potatoes using egg whites. "My husband constantly raves about his mother’s mashed potatoes," she wrote. "She used egg whites, somehow. They had to be good, because when the farmers gathered and the women cooked, they’d all request Marie’s mashed potatoes." 

Dais Richardson of Crawfordville, Florida, sent this recipe, with the added note, "Children love this one."
