Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. In a large mixing bowl, combine rock salt, egg whites and water (the mixture will start to loosely bind). Brush potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary. On a baking sheet form four mounds of the salt mixture. Make an indenture in the center of each mound, allowing the diameter to be slightly larger than each potato. Form 1/2" high walls around indenture or cup. Place one potato in each cup. Cover the rest of the potato with salt mixture, forming a tomb around potato. Place pan in oven and cook 50-60 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven and using the blunt end of a knife, crack salt tomb in middle. Remove top of half of tomb. Carefully brush off excess salt. Remove potato and again brush off excess salt. make a slit down the middle and gently squeeze potato. Garnish with chopped parsley.
