Base Recipe Ingredients:
2 cups, unheated, Mrs. Gerry’s Garlic Red-Skin Mashed Potatoes
3 large eggs
²⁄3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F. Use cooking spray to lightly coat a muffin tin (mini muffin tin typically used. If desired, use a regular sized muffin tin and increase cooking time by 10 minutes.)
Place the eggs in a large mixing bowl and whisk until blended. Then add the mashed potatoes and Parmesan cheese to the bowl and stir to combine. Mix in additional salt and pepper if desired.
Use this base mixture and add in any of the ingredient sets found below to create one of the various flavor profiles. Alternatively, you can mix your own set of desired ingredients in. Mix until ingredients are blended evenly.
Fill muffin tins with batter. Bake for about 20 minutes, until tops are golden brown and internal temperature reaches at least 165°F. Allow puffs to cool for 5 minutes. Serve with garnish if desired.
Serve immediately or maintain at 165º to 180ºF.
