Mashed Potato Puffs
- 2 cups mashed potatoes
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 3/4 cup parmesan or gruyere, grated and divided
- 1/4 cup chives, minced
- 1/4 cup diced ham, optional
- salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
heat the oven to 400F and lightly grease the cups of a regular muffin tin, or a mini-muffin tin. Whisk together the mashed potatoes, eggs, 1/2 cup of cheese, chives, and ham. Taste and season, if necessary, with salt and pepper. Put a spoonful of the mixture in each muffin cup. Sprinkle the top of each potato puff with grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the potato cups are set, browned on top, and hot through and through. Serve immediately.
