Use leftover potatoes in this recipe.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Advertisement

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1/2 cup cooled mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup shortening, melted


In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat eggs well; blend in milk, potato, cheese and shortening. Add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

Spoon into large greased or paper lined muffin cups, filling three quarters full. Bake in oven at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and tops are firm to the touch.

I think I have just found my new favorite muffin to make. I just made this recipe and absolutely love it.


Seriously can be addicting. May add a little more cheese next time, but a great recipe.

This was posted over 10 years ago and the member is no longer active on the website. But I think you could leave out the sugar with no problem. If you try it, please let us know how it turns out.

I think I'll try it with some herbs, such as rosemary (I love rosemary bread).
