Cheesy Potato Puffs
Preparation time 20 mins
Cooking time 15 mins
Serves 4 to 6
500g all-purpose potatoes, boiled and mashed until smooth
4 spring onions, finely chopped
½ cup mature cheddar cheese, finely grated
3 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp butter
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
2 eggs, separated
Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Grease a 12-hole non-stick muffin tin, also greasing the flat sections of the tin in between the holes.
Combine the mashed potato with the spring onion and cheese in a large bowl.
Put the milk and butter in a small saucepan and warm gently. Add the nutmeg then season with salt and pepper, swirling the pan to help melt the butter. Heat to just below boiling point, then beat into the potato mixture before beating in the egg yolks.
Whisk the eggwhites until soft peaks form. Stir a spoonful or two into the potato mixture to loosen it, then fold in the rest as lightly as possible.
Spoon the mixture into muffin tins and bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and well risen.
