This recipe inspired by our Circle of Friends member, Juana from the Dominican Republic, is a traditional side dish that is easy to prepare for everyday meals yet special enough to serve when entertaining. Mashed yucca and potatoes are enriched with egg yolk and evaporated milk, lightened with beaten egg white and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese before baking.


  • 2 lbs. frozen yucca or fresh, peeled and cubed (make sure stringy cores in centers are removed)
  • 1 lb. potatoes, peeled, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white or black pepper
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • 1/4 cup (1 1/2 oz.) grated Parmesan cheese or Gruyère cheese
