Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare and Carris Health care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to helps us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD

    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
    • 1/4 cup cream cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)


    1. Crack the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks.
    2. Put all the whites into a bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for 2 minutes.
    3. Add the cream of tartar and whisk again until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
    4. In another bowl, add the yolks and the cream cheese and garlic powder (optional), mixing on high until well combined. Gently fold this mixture into the egg whites carefully, as to not break down the egg whites too much.
    5. Spoon out the final mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. They do fluff up a bit in the oven, so leave enough space to breathe.
    6. Put in the oven at 375°F for 15 to 20 minutes until slightly golden brown on top.
    7. Serve and enjoy!
    8. Store at room temp for 3 days or freeze.
    9. Different spices can be added for different flavors, such as chives, rosemary, thyme and basil.
    10. Great served with a Turkey burger spiced with sage, chives and garlic. You can even sprinkle a little cheese on top!
