Reviews for Mashed Potato Cups
"Hey Girl, I'm up in Epsom. These look great. I am doing this for my next potatoes. I use only the whole raw milk from the farmer down the road. I love to fully load my mashed potatoes. I put all kinds of stuff Italian, pizza. Chinese, etc. In the smaller cupcake tins lined w/ puff pastry, or the poppin' fresh rolls flattened out, these will make great appetizers. I can't wait to experiment. Bacon, ham, corned beef, sausage, Kielbasa cheeses, topped w/marmalade glaze. Gimme someplace to go to.... I need to create some potato stuffed pastry apps. Everyone loves my apps. Thank you for your delightful potato cups. Goin' to make some now...."
"I added chopped chives and garlic. I used cupcake liners and they worked well."
"Cute idea, but not functional from the looks of it. Perhaps if you used a silicon liner or small ramekin cups you could make these more effectively. Recipe itself was a little bland. We also used garlic, extra salt & more cheese, however we put ours in ramekins."
"I'm confused: if you have to scoop them out of each Cupcake Holder on the pan, wouldn't it be easier to just make them in one large bowl (like normal) and scoop them out of the bowl? The novelty of it is nice, but functionally it's more work and more to clean up."
"sallygirl7 - most people add milk and butter to their mashed potatoes. The recipe is telling you not to do that when you mash them because you will add it further down in the recipe."
