Ingredients

  • 2  Cups  hot mashed potatoes
  • 3  Pounds  grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • eggs, separated
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cream of tartar
  • 3  Tablespoons  chopped chives or scallions
  • 1/2  Cup  sour cream

Directions

Beat the mashed potatoes with the sour cream, the shredded cheese, salt and pepper, and the egg yolks. A blender does the best job of this in about 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped chives or scallions. 
 
Beat the egg whites with a little salt and a pinch of cream of tartar until stiff. Fold them carefully into the potato mixture and pile it into a buttered souffle dish. Bake in a preheated, 350° degree oven for about 45 minutes and serve at once.
