I’ll probably never make this, but it sounded good. Potatoes combined with milk are practically a perfect food, but this may be gilding the lily. Potatoes are high in vitamin C, have no cholesterol, are fat-free, have many vitamins and minerals and are cheap and easy to store. It's the gravy, cheese, sour cream and sides that give it a bad name



  • 3 cups of mashed potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (optional extra for serving)
  • 1 heaping cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives or parsley
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Lightly grease with butter 8 - 9 of the wells of a nonstick muffin  pan.

In a medium mixing bowl whisk the eggs then mix in the sour cream. Stir in both cheeses and the chives. Add potatoes and mix well. Spoon them into the pan filling the cups to slightly below the top. Bake 25- 35 minutes until they pull away from the sides of the cup and are golden brown. Remove from oven and let them cool 5 minutes in pan. Serve with sour cream if desired.
