3 large egg whites
3 cups cooked and mashed potatoes
1 cup 1% cottage cheese (8 oz.)
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream (4 oz.)
3 Tbsp. grated onion
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Coat a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg white for 4 minutes, or until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In another large bowl, combine the potatoes, cottage cheese, sour cream, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Beat with the mixer on medium speed for 4 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl, using a rubber spatula or spoon, gently fold the beaten egg whites into the potato mixture.
Gently spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 1 hour, or until slightly puffed and golden.
Serve immediately. (It is natural for the souffle to fall slightly after a few minutes). Makes 8 servings.

5. Title: Strawberry Meringue Pudding
Categories: Australian, Desserts, Ceideburg 2
Yield: 6 servings

This is an Australian recipe circa 1950 (cakes and puddings always were Australia's forte) which deserves a revival. At the time, most homes always had a supply of cake and biscuits on hand, so cake and biscuit crumbs were a by-product which needed a use. Nowadays you will probably have to buy a plain cake to obtain the crumbs. The recipe is hardly for weight-watchers but, even so, is quite low in fat.

Preheat the oven to 190C. Hull 3 cupfuls of strawberries and slice them into an oven dish. Sift over them half a cup of icing sugar. Heat one cup of milk. Separate 2 eggs, beat the yolks and stir into the milk off the heat. Add 1 cup of cake or sweet biscuit crumbs and spread the mixture over the strawberries. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile beat the 2 egg whites until stiff then fold in 4 tablespoons of castor sugar. Remove the pudding from the oven and pile this meringue on top of it in peaks, or swirls.

Bake in a slow (130C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Makes 6 servings.
