As you recover from your turkey coma this Thanksgiving, you may be wondering “What am I going to do with all this leftover food?”
Of course you can make turkey sandwiches with stuffing and cranberry sauce for lunch. Maybe even top them with a little gravy. But what about the mashed potatoes? Well, why not have them for breakfast?
Yes, you did read that right. I did say breakfast.
Take those leftover mashed potatoes from your Turkey Day feast and turn them into potato “crusts” for delicious muffin tin quiches for tomorrow morning’s breakfast!
We made ours with mushrooms, garlic, Asiago cheese and fresh rosemary.
To make these Mashed Potato Crusted Muffin Tin Mushroom Quiches, start by preheating your oven to 400° F. Then, generously grease a non-stick 12-cup muffin pan with butter, olive oil or cooking spray. We used butter, lots of butter. 🙂
Next, press leftover mashed potatoes into the muffin cups and bake until sides are golden brown. Lower the heat to 350° F.
When potato “crusts” are almost done, saute mushrooms and garlic until mushrooms are golden brown.
Whisk eggs, light coconut milk (or half-and-half), rosemary and pepper together.
When potato “crusts” are done, add mushrooms and Asiago cheese into the bottom of each potato cup.
Pour egg mixture over mushrooms and cheese until each cup is filled almost to the top.
Top with additional Asiago cheese.
Bake until each quiche is set in the center.
Let cool before serving. Who says you can’t eat mashed potatoes for breakfast? Enjoy! 🙂
