Parmesan-Crusted Mashed Potato Muffins Recipe Will Rock Your World

Mashed potato muffins are my new obsession. First came this cheesy mashed potato muffins recipe with spinach and peppers. Next came this creamy broccoli cheese mashed potato muffins recipe. Both were delicious, but I found myself wanting a version that included my favorite parts of each recipe.

Enter this Parmesan-crusted mashed potato muffins recipe with fresh peppers and broccoli. If you enjoy mashed potatoes, Parmesan cheese and fresh veggies, then this mashed potato puffs recipe will rock your world.

This gluten-free mashed potato bombs recipe is loaded with healthy broccoli, onions and yellow peppers, plus a couple of secret ingredients I like to add to boost nutrition: low-fat cottage cheese and low-fat ricotta cheese (read about the health benefits of cottage cheese and the health benefits of ricotta cheese).

To make these tasty mashed potato muffins, you will need mashed potatoes, eggs, low-fat ricotta cheese, low-fat cottage cheese, shredded Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, smoked paprika, oregano, olive oil, yellow peppers and fresh broccoli. These vegetarian mashed potato puffs make a great side dish with dinner or an energizing snack throughout the day.

You'll be amazed by how similar these mashed potato muffins are to quiche, so feel free to enjoy them for breakfast and brunch, or as a fun appetizer for your next gathering. My family can't get enough of them, so be sure to make plenty since they go quickly!

Recipe Notes

  • You can make your own mashed potatoes or use pre-made mashed potatoes, such as Bob Evans brand.
  • If you don't have yellow pepper, you can use any color bell pepper.
  • Instead of Parmesan cheese, you can try this recipe with cheddar or another favorite cheese.
  • Feel free to add more or less garlic powder and/or paprika, depending on your tastes.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave.

Here's how to make it:

  1. To a large microwave-safe bowl, add the broccoli. Cover broccoli with a damp paper towel and microwave until crisp-tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. To a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil, onion and peppers. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the mashed potatoes, eggs, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, half of the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano and paprika. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Mix well to thoroughly combine.
  4. Add the vegetable mixture and the steamed broccoli to the mashed potato mixture.
  5. Stir to thoroughly combine.
  6. Add muffin liners to two muffin tins. Fill the liners with the mixture. Top the muffins with the remaining Parmesan cheese, ensuring each muffin has an equal amount of cheese on top.
  7. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven until cooked through and Parmesan-crusted tops are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving.
