    What I used for my Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes

    • Garlic press: Mincing garlic by hand takes so long. I love this hand press because it does the work in a couple seconds. 
    • Skillet: I like using a nonstick skillet when sautéeing mushrooms to get that golden brown color. This one has never steered me wrong!
    • Muffin pan: You can use any muffin pan you want for this recipe! You can even use a mini muffin pan for bite-sized mashed potatoes, just reduce the cook time.

    How to Make Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes

    1. First, boil the potatoes until they’re fork tender. I always save a little of the potato water in a bowl in case the potatoes get too thick. While they boil, sauté the mushrooms, garlic, and green onions until softened.
    2. Then, mash the potatoes and add some butter and milk. Beat the mixture until smooth and fluffy.
    3. Next, add the sautéed veggies to the mashed potatoes along with the flour, eggs, baking powder, and a little salt and pepper. Stir together gently. Overmixed mashed potatoes turn into glue.
    4. Finally, add the potatoes to a greased muffin tin and bake until golden brown on top. Let them rest a few minutes before serving. 

    Muffin Tin Mashed Potatoes are so much fun to make and to eat! You can top them with shredded cheese near the end of baking and flip on the broiler for a few minutes.

    What Can You Use in Place of Milk in Mashed Potatoes?

    Mashed potatoes are two main ingredients: potatoes and liquid. You can use almost any liquid you’d cook with, but dairy makes the creamiest mashed potatoes. Heavy cream, half-and-half, even sour cream or cream cheese can be used if you just ran out of milk.

    Mashed potatoes are naturally vegetarian, but it’s easy to make them vegan mashed potatoes with just a few swaps. You can use vegetable broth or an unsweetened alt milk like oat milk or almond milk. 

    Chicken stock is also a great option to bring lots of flavor to your mashed potatoes without adding dairy.

    You can swap the butter, too! Butter brings a lot of flavor to mashed potatoes, but you could swap it for a flavorful oil like olive or grapeseed oil. You could also use margarine!

    These are just as delicious as regular mashed potatoes, but my kids love them! It’s also a cleaner way to serve my favorite side dish for dinner parties.

    Where there’s meatloaf, there’s mashed potatoes. I love this Caribbean Meatloaf because it’s a little sweet and tangy topped with pineapples!

    Cheaper steaks can be the most flavorful, and this Mushroom Swiss Steak dresses up a round steak with delicious gravy.

      This is such a great idea and would be fun to to served mash potatoes as a muffin. Thanks for the recipe.

    2. Seeing this a couple years after you posted. Question – how many cups of mashed potatoes is your recipe? The potatoes I have are either very small or very large, so “10 potatoes, peeled and chopped” doesn’t give me a good idea of how many to use. Knowing how many cups of mashed I need in the end would definitely help. Thanks

      1. Hi Sandra, Thanks for commenting! I’m trying remember, but would estimate it would be around 6 to 8 cups of mashed potatoes.

    3. Debbie White Beattie says:
