Mashed Potato Cups Ingredients:

  • Potatoes: whether freshly mashed or leftover, they both work just the same. I prefer using Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes.
  • Colby and Monterey Jack cheese: is my personal liking, however cheddar, mozzarella, or any other cheese you prefer would be just as good.
  • Parmesan cheese: for a special quick of cheesiness and saltiness.
  • Milk: you have the option of using any milk of your choice or whole milk which is my favorite for mashed potatoes.
  • Unsalted butter for that flavor and added buttery texture.
  • Green onion: parsley and fresh rosemary can also be used.
  • Black, white pepper and onion powder: for that exceptional taste. Whichever spices and herbs you’d prefer can also be added.

How To Make Mashed Potato Cups?

    1. Turn on your oven to 350 F. Spray some cooking oil on two muffin tins of 6-cups or use a greased muffin tin of 12-cups.

    2. Bring some water to boil, add salt and throw in your potatoes. Cook them for around 15 minutes or until soft. Then drain the potatoes and mash them.

    3. Add in your milk, cheese, butter, onion powder, white pepper, black pepper, salt, and green onion. Mix until well blended. Put equal portions of your mashed potatoes in each of the 12 muffin cups. Pepper some more Monterey Jack and Colby cheese on top. Pop in your warmed-up oven for around 20 minutes.

    4. Take your muffin tin out of the oven and use a spoon to put sour cream on top or scatter some green onions. Now savor it!
