Mashed Potato “Muffins”

When I was making the Chicken Burgers the other night, I also decided to try my hand at making Mashed potato muffins to go with it.  We love mashed potatoes and finding another way to enjoy them is just a bonus in this house.  Add some garlic and cheese into the mixture and it is a sure winner for us!


These would be great to make and freeze as individual portions for a quick side dish to any meal!


Here are my ingredients. All of them this time lol!


I started by washing, peeling and cooking my potatoes as outlined in my Microwave Mashed Potatoes post, without adding the cheese…. yet.


I mixed in the milk, butter, garlic powder, cheese and chopped curly parsley and continued to mash the potatoes until the cheese melted and everything was well blended.


I was using a large muffin tin, so I divided the potato mixture evenly between the 6 muffin tin cups.


Then sprinkled the tops with the second amount of grated cheese.


I baked them at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the cheese on top was melted and they started to form a bit of a crust. (Note: I think next time I make these I will cook them a bit longer because they were a little difficult to get out of the pan because the mashed potato at the bottom hadn’t fully formed the crust)


I removed them from the pan and served them!
