Mmmmmm, so creamy and yummy!!!! A great idea for dressing up plain mashed potatoes! Very easy to make and very tasty! I made the Italian version, which went so great with some sauteed mushrooms and herby baked zucchini. Mmmm, yum! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Annacia! It will be made again. Made and reviewed for Zaar Stars May 2010.
Loved these! A cross between mashed and twice baked potato without the skin, which I don't like so much anyway. Made the Italin version in ramakins.
Potatoes, garlic, cheese, sour cream - what's not to love! I made the Italian version (with cheddar) and put foil liners in my muffin pan - they came out with no problem. These were wonderful hot and room temp. Thanks for posting this recipe!
I made these tonight with instant mashed potatoes and only half the amount of sour cream. I opted for the Mexican version. I left out the jalapeÃ±o and olives,so the kids would eat it, but I think it would be excellent included. I used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Just before these came out of the oven, I topped with a little more cheese. I made these in ramekins that were well oiled. These were impressive and tasted great. Thanks for the recipe.
I made both versions, using instant mashed potatoes with less liquid than called for since other reviewers had issues with them falling apart when removing from the pan. They turned out great, and were much easier to remove once they had cooled.
The taste is great but mine were too soft -they just sort of fell out of tin looking like mashed potatoes. I used the Italian version with full fat sour cream and aged white cheddar. I wonder if each portion should be rolled in Panko and then refrigerated for a few hours before going into the oven? Or adding an egg? Thank you Annacia for sharing. Made for Zaar stars.
Pretty good, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra effort to individualize these. I flirted with fate and used a greased individual bundt pan for a novel effect. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
They didn't hold up to look like muffins, but the taste was pretty good
I'm rating these more on flavor than on presentation. I baked them for 30 minutes and they still weren't golden on top and I couldn't get them out of the tin w/out turning them back into mashed potatoes! :) I did the Italian version and added some oregano. Used cheddar cheese, and probably more than the recipe calls for. Used lite sour cream, so that may have added too much water. Anyways, they tasted great.
Very easy and delicious. I cooked and mashed the potatoes on Thursday, added the italian version ingredients on Friday and spooned into muffin tins. Refrigerated until Saturday supper then baked as directed. Turned out great. Next time I make these, I'm going to try freezing some.
