The key to making these little leftover mashed potato gems stand out is height and a mini-muffin pan. You can use a regular muffin pan, but then the end result is more of a side dish portion. These mashed potato bites call for blue cheese, but you can switch out the blue for your choice. Here’s a tip: less expensive blue cheese crumbles are usually the least flavorful, and that’s what you want for these bites. Don't select a blue cheese that’s too pungent or it will drown out the potato and fresh herb flavors. What you want is just a hint of blue in every bite.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients – except half the chives and blue cheese – into a large mixing bowl. Mix slightly so potatoes and cheese remain chunky.
  2. Grease muffin tin with butter and spoon mixture into each cup. Bake until center potato bite is warm.
  3. Then, sprinkle remaining blue cheese and broil bites until slightly golden.
  4. Garnish with chives and serve on little spoons as an appetizer or serve multiple bites as a side dish.
