“Mashed Potato with 2 toppings of sweet & salty that never fails to impress. Served in petite cup size, just as perfect as the canapés for your house party.”
Looking for something to be served at your house party? Or a quick snack before your dinner date? Maybe for an afternoon tea?
This was one of the sides I had in my food library brain that I wished to share. Previously, this mashed potato was served in large single portion meant for 1-2 of us at home as our quick lunch. I thought it might be better to remain it as a side and to serve at a tea party or something. I decorated it in cups, instead.
Just 25 min of preparation time, excluding pre-boiling of potatoes.
Serves 8-10 cups
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
3 medium eggs
3 tablespoons butter
1-2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 tablespoon of olive oil
3 bananas, sliced lengthwise
3 sausages (frankfurters in flavor of your choice), sliced lengthwise
Sliced cherry tomato
Coarsely ground black pepper
Dried rosemary (bottled type)
1) Bring potatoes to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low-medium fire, simmer potatoes for 20 min, or until the potatoes are completely softened.
2) Drain the potatoes and transfer to a large bowl, mash the potatoes until smooth.
3) Melt butter in the hot mashed potato, add garlic salt and Dijon mustard, combine well.
4) In a small saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high fire. Add eggs, use spatula to gently scramble for 10 seconds. Remove runny eggs from saucepan and immediately pour onto the mashed potato and mix evenly altogether.
5) Divide mashed potato into cups, top and arrange sliced banana and sausages decoratively. Garnish and serve.
A cup of my mashed potato counts about 120kcal.
Tips: Add also 1 – 2 tablespoon of (cheddar) cheese flakes to the mashed potato, if you like to have some ‘cheesy’ taste, but don’t forget the additional 120 kcal for each tablespoon you add.
*Sprinkle some pepper when mixing eggs into the mashed potato, as desired.
*For making party cups, use disposable cupcake or muffin cups.
