Mashed Potato Timbales


  • 2-1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs


  • 1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Drain. Mash potatoes with butter and onion until small lumps of potato remain; set aside.
  • 2. In a bowl, beat ricotta cheese, sour cream, salt, garlic powder, rosemary and pepper until smooth. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until frothy; fold into cheese mixture. Fold into potato mixture.
  • 3. Generously coat muffin cups with cooking spray; evenly sprinkle muffin cups with bread crumbs. Fill with potato mixture; smooth tops.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 27-30 minutes or until edges of potatoes are lightly browned. Cool for 15 minutes. Loosen timbales from sides of muffins cups; invert onto a baking sheet to remove.

    Loved these. What a different way to have mashed potatoes. I stored leftovers in the fridge and reheated in the microwave. They were a little softer than right from the oven but still tasted very good.

    My entire family loves these. They can turn out a little grainy sometimes, but that may be the potato.
