    I stole this from Facebook, I've made it a couple of times now. I've added spinach, mushrooms and pepperoni bits and it was pretty good. You can put it in muffin trays or in a flat baking tray.

    Use up your garden potatoes, eggs and chives

    POTATO PUFFS

    Ingredients:
    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

    Directions:
    1 - Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2 - Lightly grease with butter 8 - 9 of the wells of a nonstick muffin pan.
    3 - 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.
    4 - Spoon them into the pan filling the cups to slightly below the top.
    5 - 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

    This sounds nice. Do they pop up like a cup cake or something?

    I just bought 2 kgs of seed potatoes today so I'm definitely going to try this with my home grown taters :) reckon the kids would love these!

    Mine didn't pop up really, just got the nice golden crust on top, like a Shepards pie kind of thing. I think it would go well along side sausages and vegies.
