Here’s a lovely potato side dish that will go with any main – just add a fresh, leafy salad too! They also make wonderful nibbles on a picnic.
You will need:
3 cups of mashed Potatoes
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sour cream or yoghurt
1 heaped cup of grated cheddar cheese
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons chopped herbs such as chives, thyme, oreganum, marjoram or parsley
Salt and pepper to taste.
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 180°C. Lightly grease about 9 of the wells of a muffin tray.
In a bowl whisk the eggs lightly. Mix in the sour cream or yoghurt. Stir in both cheeses and the herb / herbs of your choice. Add potatoes and mix well.
Spoon them into the muffin tray filling each one about 2/3’s full.
Bake for 25-35 minutes until they are golden brown and pull away from the sides.
Remove from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes in the muffin tray.
Take them out and serve with a dollop of sour cream or yoghurt
