Are you looking for a new Homemade Mashed Potatoes Recipe this holiday season?  Or, any season?  Check out this combination of sweet potatoes and white potatoes.  They are a dynamic duo of flavor.  It’s not a quick recipe, but it’s an easy recipe.  

You can simply serve these as mashed potatoes, which does cut the time indicated below in the printable recipe in half!  Or, you can bake them in a kid-friendly, cupcake styled fashion for a little holiday food fun that everyone will enjoy.  I personally like this because it’s already portioned and controlled when it hits my plate making it a double win; great flavors that are portioned.

If you do decide to turn your Homemade Mashed Potatoes Recipe into cupcakes, I suggest you make the mashed potatoes ahead and have them piped into a cupcake lined pan in the refrigerator either earlier in the day or the day before you will be serving them.  It will help to reduce your time in the kitchen when entertaining, because all you have to do is remove them from the refrigerator and bake them before serving them to your guests.  We all want to reduce our time in the kitchen when entertaining!

Homemade Mashed Potatoes Recipe by Jodie Fitz

2 white potatoes, medium

2 sweet potatoes, small

4 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon onion powder

¾ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon coriander

Peel, wash and dice the potatoes. They should yield 5 – 6 cups of diced potatoes. Place the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with them with cold water. Bring them to a boil. Cover and let them cook for approximately 20 minutes, until tender.

Drain the water and mash the potatoes with 4 tablespoons of butter with a potato masher.

Add the onion powder, salt and coriander to the potatoes and mix with an electric mixer; until smooth. Let them mixture cool a bit.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.

Place the cooled mashed potatoes in a gallon sized snap and seal storage bag. Clip one corner and pipe the potatoes into the liners to create potato cupcakes (and individual servings).

Bake the potatoes for 20-25 minutes.

Note: When you remove the potato cupcakes from the pan. Have a tray ready with fresh decorative liners all set. Simply pick up each cupcake by its paper edge with two hands and place them into the added liner for serving.
