Mashed Potato Breakfast Muffins

I had a lot of leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving and wanted to do something creative with them since we were all a bit mashed potatoed out. I took stock of what I had in my pantry/kitchen and decided to make these super satisfying mashed potato breakfast muffins! They easy and fun to make and really delicious!

Here's how to make them:


  • 3 cups mashed potatoes

  • 1-2 large eggs. Note: If your potatoes are a little watery or runny add the second egg.

  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, parmesan, or whatever you like!)

  • 1 cup chopped bacon or sausage

  • 2-3 TBS all purpose flour (optional)

  • 1 clove minced garlic

  • 3 TBS chopped chives (note: I didn't have any when I made these but next time will definitely add them!)

  • If you have veggies you want to add, chop them and cook down before adding to the mix.


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.

  2. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with butter spray ,or real butter. You can also use cupcake liners.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, egg(s), cheese, garlic and chives. If the mixture is too runny, add in 2 tablespoons of flour until you get a slightly thicker consistency.

  4. Divide the mixture evenly amongst the 12 muffin cups.

  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and the edges are crispy.

  6. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan on a rack,

  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
