Recipe by joanna_giselle
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 12 muffins




  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F (175C).
  • Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or use paper liners (preferably green or with shamrocks on them).
  • In a small saucepan, cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 8 minutes or until just tender.
  • Drain and rinse under cold water and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • In a large bowl, beat the egg, oil, buttermilk, chives or spring onion and parsley.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the buttermilk mixture until nearly combined. Gently fold in potatoes. Add the cheese if using, note that you should reduce the added salt if using a salty cheese like parmesan or crumbled feta.
  • Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes. You can top these with extra grated cheese, sesame seeds or even some flax seeds.
  • Remove pan from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Then remove muffins and cool on rack.
  • Serve with a glass of Guinness!.
