  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 and line a 12 cup muffin pan with foil squares. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. Peel the potatoes and grate them into shreds (the grating attachment on your food processor is perfect for this!
  3. Mix all ingredients together. Divide the mixture among the 12 muffin cups and press onto the bottom and sides of the cups. Bake until crispy, about 45 minutes.
  4. When cool enough to handle, take out of the muffin cups and peel away the foil. Fill with your choice of eggs (or barbecue!)
