Chive Potato Souffle
I've enjoyed cooking with herbs since I was a teenager. Chives, which are one of my favorites, enhance the flavor of this cheesy souffle.—Wendy L Nickel, Kiester, Minnesota
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min.

- In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, cheese, sour cream, chives and salt. Beat egg yolks; stir into potato mixture. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; gently fold into the potato mixture. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.
