Flavor was wonderful and low fat. They weren't very attractive or easy to serve from muffin tins, although I sprayed them with Baker's Joy. They puffed up, but upon sitting they sunk in the middle. Can't give them the hightest rating ; however, believe they would be a 5-star if (2) baked a casserole which would make them easier to serve and (2) had an attractive topping such as chives, cheese, parsley, etc. I will make these again as a casserole.

These are the best!!!!! Actually never thought of serving them for a brunch buffet- that's a good idea!

What a pleasure! We ended up with more than two dozen - which was not a problem because we ate six apiece! We added a couple beets and some baby bella mushrooms sauteed in dill to the mash. We also added a carrot-cherry wine sauce based on the recipe below - Wilted collard greens with minced garlic made a nice complement (at least for us!). We will *definitely* will be making these again!
