Baked Mashed Potatoes

Bake mashed potatoes in a muffin pan and see how surprised your family will be!  It looks just like a muffin, but it is really only the outside which has been baked to hold it together. The inside is soft mash.

I like Parmesan on top whereas the most of my family prefer Cheddar - it is really up to you which one to use. {left is a muffin topped with Cheddar and on the right with Parmesan}.

As with normal mashed potatoes I serve them with a sauce which could be a gravy or a store-bought packet of cheese sauce.  {which is what I used - Cheddar Cheese Sauce with Black Peppercorns and extra Cheddar stirred through until melted}

Baked Mashed Potatoes

{makes 12 muffin size servings}

{adapted by me from the recipe book Spyskaarte vir Elke Seisoen}

5 Large Potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
3 t Garlic, crushed
4 TB Butter
1/2 t Nutmeg
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
2 Extra-Large Eggs, separated
Cheddar or Parmesan to top, grated

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - Spray a 12 hole muffin pan with Spray'N Cook.
2.) Boil the Potatoes and Garlic in lightly salted water until just soft enough to mash - drain, using a colander, and transfer to a mixing bowl - mash the potatoes with the tiny bits of Garlic.
3.) Add the Butter, stir through, and add the Nutmeg together with the Salt & Pepper - add the Egg Yolks and quickly stir into the potato mixture.
4.) In a separate bowl, beat the Egg Whites until stiff, but not dry - fold this into the potatoes.
5.) Fill the muffin pan holes with the Potato mixture - sprinkle Cheddar or Parmesan Cheese over - bake 25 - 30 minutes until just starting to brown.
6.) Remove from the oven - wait a minute or two and then lift out using a large table spoon.

Serve immediately with a sauce of your choice or extra Butter.
