Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes were a staple on our dinner table growing up. My mom used to make her mashed potatoes whipped with milk and butter and made sure there were no chunks left. I was a picky kid and wouldn’t eat them if I discovered they were chunky! Also, my grandmother believed it wasn’t a meal unless it was served with a helping of mashed potatoes. Anytime there was meat on the plate, you’d always find mashed potatoes right there. I got a little sick of eating them back then and only started to serve them more regularly many years later.

I like to keep things interesting and try new mashed potato recipes. I had written down a recipe a long time ago for Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes, but had  never gotten around to make them. I was missing out! They are yummy and a new, tasty take on classic mashed potatoes. Also, if you have mashed potato leftovers and aren’t sure what to do with them, this is your recipe to try!

I love them hot and fresh out of the oven. I cut mine open and put a dollop of butter and let melt inside. Soooo good! This is comfort food, folks.

You can mix it up a little and add in whatever veggies you have on hand. I’m thinking this would be a good recipe to make after Thanksgiving to use up the leftover potatoes and veggies.
