Jeanette’s Breakfast Cups

ham-mashed-potato-breakfast-cups-5Schedules sure get busy in the fall and Jeanette Chen from Jeanette’s Healthy Living always has a great recipe to share! This ‘make it in a muffin pan’ any meal recipe is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Just line the muffin tins with ham and scooped a mixture of leftover mashed potatoes and scallions into each muffin tin. Though great as a way to start the day, this is a quick recipe for an after practice meal prepared beforehand.
Ham Mashed Potato Breakfast Cups
6 slices uncured ham
1½ cups leftover mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons chopped scallion
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons rBST-free shredded sharp cheddar cheese
paprika, optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil 6 muffin tins. Line each muffin tin with a slice of ham. Mix together leftover mashed potatoes and scallions. Place ¼ cup mashed potato mixture inside each muffin tin. Sprinkle one tablespoon shredded cheese on top of each muffin tin. Sprinkle a little paprika on top, if desired. Bake 18-20 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted.
