Mashed Potato Timbales, American

I un-healthied this recipe which I got in an email from - I don't like using low-fat versions and wasting egg yolks. For the healthy version see

  • 2 1/2 lbs. potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1 carton (8 ozs.) ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup (8 ozs.) sour cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
Preparation Instructions

Boil potatoes until tender. Drain. Mash potatoes with butter and onion until small lumps of potato remain; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat ricotta cheese, sour cream, salt, garlic powder, rosemary and pepper until smooth. In a small bowl, beat eggs until frothy; fold into cheese mixture. Fold into potato mixture.

Generously coat grease muffin cups; evenly sprinkle muffin cups with bread crumbs. Fill with potato mixture; smooth tops.

Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees F for 27-30 minutes or until edges of potatoes are lightly browned. Cool for 15 minutes. Loosen timbales from sides of muffin cups; invert onto a baking sheet to remove.
