Who doesn’t love potatoes? I love potatoes… I can have them anywhere and with anything. This recipe I’m sharing today is an awesome variation of our beloved mashed potatoes and let me tell you these cheesy potato cups are AH-MAZING!!! I can’t believe I made this so long ago and hadn’t shared it with you all! Shame on me! But hey! Here it is!

Cheesy Potato Cups

Cheesy Potato Cups Recipe #potatorecipe #cheesypotato #easyrecipe

It’s super easy to make but is not that quick, to be honest but the taste is so worth it. It’s not like you will need a whole morning to make it but it will take a little longer than regular mashed potatoes. Not so bad, is it? …Look at those pictures… They are worth it LOL.

This is perfect as an appetizer, side dish or even snack. It’s healthy and full of flavor. I’m sure that with tiny tweaks no kid would resist these cheesy potato cups served with ketchup LOL.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 cups of fresh mashed potatoes cooled
  • ¾ cheddar cheese {shredded}
  • 1/3 cup of green onions {chopped really small}
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 eggs {separate egg whites and yolk}
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF {200ºC} and line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

In a small pan, heat milk and butter until they are about to boil and add in the potatoes, cheese, onions, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Incorporate the yolks and mix well.

In a stand mixer beat the egg whites until hard peaks are formed.

Start mixing one big spoon at a time with soft movements until you get all the egg whites and potatoes mixed.

Divide evenly the mixture for 12 cups and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until it rises and golden brown.

Serve immediately as your side dish, or with salad. It also goes perfectly with sausages and ketchup for kids!

This recipe can take about an hour or so if you prepare the mashed potatoes the same day. If you have it done then it might take no more than 35 minutes!

Enjoy!
