As far as I am concerned Potatoes are in their food group. My question is do you use a mini muffin tin or a regular sized one? Appetizer makes me think Mini but looking at the ingredients I think regular size.
I also didn’t see a serving size.
I use Regular size muffin tin.
What food group are referring to?
Yes, this is an appetizer. You can eat it with a fork in small bites.
The reason why I did not use mini muffin tin is that thes are really hard to remove from the mini slots, and regular works best for me.
You are more than welcome to try and make the mini version. Let me know!
Serving size is in the nutritional label an it is one (1) muffin per one (1) person.
how do i modify this to use fresh potatoes?
Use 2 1 /2 cups of mashed potatoes made from fresh potatoes.
