Mashed Potato Cups

If you’re looking to spice up the way you make potatoes, look no further. Even if you’re not looking for a way to spice up your potatoes, you need to make these little cups of deliciousness right away. They’re so easy to make, tasty, and so versatile they would go with almost any meal plan!


  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbs 1/2 and 1/2 (you could also use sour cream)
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1 Tbs seasoned salt (I used Season All)
  • 1/2 C shredded cheddar (or cheese of choice)
  • 1 Tbs chopped chives

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Scrub potatoes, then rub with olive oil and sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper. Cook in microwave for 5 minutes, then turn over and cook another 5 minutes. You can obviously cook the potatoes in the oven or boil them, but if you’re running low on time like I always am microwaving them might be the best choice!

Once cooked, add potatoes to large bowl with the remaining ingredients and mash away. I like to keep the skin on and mash just until they’re not super lumpy…I hope that makes sense to more than just me.

Spray muffin tin with cooking spray, then add mashed potatoes to each cup. Drizzle a little melted butter on top of each potato cup if desired, which by the way makes them a little crispy on the edges making them all the more scrumptious. Cook for about 20-25 minutes. It’s best to let them sit for a few minutes before serving so they come out of the muffin tin all in one piece.


If you have leftovers these freeze and reheat pretty well. Tonight I paired the potatoes with pork tenderloin and bacon wrapped green beans…yum! Enjoy!
