I always mix different foods together, just to experiment. There are a lot of meals made out of different leftovers. I just feel really bad when I have to throw away food. I’m sure a lot of people feel the same way. I have trouble throwing away anything actually, old clothes, furniture…you name it. I just can’t do it 🙂 Some of the experiments turn out and some have gone horribly wrong 🙂 I remember this beet casserole dish that was just, let’s say “not good” 🙂 I couldn’t eat beets for a few months after that!
These muffins were also born because I had so many different leftovers and I wanted to use them before they go bad.
SERVES: Makes 12 muffins, we ate 3 each for dinner. Very filling.
PREP+COOKING TIME: 20 min for prepping (without rushing) + 20-25 min in the oven or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Preheat oven to 350°
1,5 cups mashed potatoes (leftovers)
1 little broccoli, steamed
1 cup shredded cheese
I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to make this.
Wash and chop mushrooms into smaller pieces.
Wash and steam broccoli for 10 minutes, until semi -soft.
Shred cheese, I bought shredded cheese already.
Fry onions (that´s the way i like it)
Put mashed potatoes into a bowl, add 2 eggs, ½ cup of cheese, chopped mushrooms, fried onions and steamed broccoli. Mix everything until well combined. Add a little bit of salt and your favourite spices.
Bake in the oven at 350 F for 20 – 25 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.How did it turn out?: I went a little overboard with the salt but otherwise it was absolutely awesome!
The best thing is that it’s ideal for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just for a snack.
