Recipe by: Mary Giuliani.

The bread crumbs and Parmesan give these Mashed Potato Popovers a delicious crisp crust.


  • 3 cups cooked mashed potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded low–moisture mozzarella
  • ¼ cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • Extra–virgin olive oil

Prep Time: 20min | Cook Time: 25min

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease two 12–cup mini muffin pans with olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, add the mashed potatoes, parsley, Parmesan, egg yolks, milk, ½ cup of the mozzarella (save the rest for topping), and 1⁄3 cup of the bread crumbs (save the rest for topping). Stir together and season with the salt and pepper.
  3. With a mini (25mm) ice cream scoop, portion the mashed potato mixture into the muffin pans.
  4. Top with the remaining mozzarella and bread crumbs.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops are melted and golden brown.
  6. Serve on a small decorative platter or pass as a small bite.
