One-Bite Cheesy Potato Puffs

Serve up these bite-sized, make-ahead mashed potato dreams at your next brunch or dinner party!

I try to always serve potatoes at brunch parties. Everyone knows that’s kind of what you’re waiting in line for at all the cool Sunday brunch spots anyway. But I find it pretty frustrating to spend a ton of time peeling and cutting up potatoes, then roasting them for so long, only to have them all shrink in size. (After all that time and effort, to not have a big yield is kind of un-cool and even rude, potatoes.)

With this method, you can serve up potatoes with brunch with simple day-ahead prep. And they’re served in a cheesy, mini-cupcake version. A one-bite dream! A petite party potato puff!

So here we go. Gather up some mashed potatoes—leftover, instant or simply make them real quick—along with your other ingredients (see complete recipe below for details).


Crisp up prosciutto (or bacon) and set aside. Mix everything together and then divide among mini-muffin cups.


Bake, garnish and serve!


These reheat well, too. Simply put them back in the oven and heat for 15-20 minutes, or until warm throughout. Leftover mashed potatoes never tasted so good!
