Garlic Potato Pancakes:
4 Yukon Gold potatoes
1 bunch chives, sliced in fine rings
4 shallots, peeled and chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped fine
2 egg whites, whipped into soft peaks
Olive oil, for sauteing
Roast the potatoes in a 450 degree F oven until cooked, about 30 minutes. Remove skins and pass the potatoes through a food mill into a bowl. Add the chives, shallots and garlic and mix. Season the mixture, and add two egg whites whipped to soft peaks. Adjust consistency with flour. Form into 4 large pancakes, dredge in flour, and saute in olive oil until golden brown on both sides and heated through.
