Cheesy potato puffs


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water until tender. (DON'T OVER COOK.) Then drain and mash well.
  • Melt the butter in a small pot, add the milk and briefly heat. Add to the mashed potato, together with the spring onions, grated cheese and quite a bit of seasonings. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  • Then add the egg yolks and mix well.
  • Whisk the egg whites to form soft peaks and then gently fold into the potato mixture, bit by bit, until light and fluffy.
  • Spoon the mixture into lightly oiled muffin trays and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until firmish to the touch and are risen and golden.
  • If you like, sprinkle with a little parmesan and serve with your favourite meat dish.
