Baked Mashed Potato Cups
These gluten-free, dairy-free, Whole30 Baked Mashed Potato Cups are a delicious side dish for any meal. The fun-sized stature makes them super easy to bring along to a potluck dinner or get-together with friends! They’re also perfect for Easter dinner, especially if you’re looking for a potato recipe that’s a little out of the ordinary.
This idea came to us one day when we were brainstorming something fun to bring to an Easter dinner. We thought the bacon and green onions would add some delicious pizazz to the potatoes, but we weren’t sure how to get them creamy enough. Plus, we wanted the potatoes to stay creamy throughout the baking process. The answer then appeared to us: cream of coconut. It turned out to be the missing piece we needed to complete this delectable culinary puzzle.
Making Baked Mashed Potato Cups
These fun-to-eat, fun-to-share Baked Mashed Potato Cups can be prepared and ready to go in no time at all. And using an Instant Pot to boil the potatoes can make it even quicker! Tyler got this 7-in-1 Instant Pot for Christmas, and we love cooking with it. It really helps cut down on our cooking time, and who would complain about that?
Roasting the garlic will add some extra time, but we highly recommend doing that before mixing it in with the potatoes. The flavor is oh so delicious! Plus, you can have the garlic roasting and the instant pot at work at the same time.
Whether you want to use baking cups or not is up to you, but having a fun pattern or favorite color surrounding each tasty bite really adds some excitement to these Baked Mashed Potato Cups! If you want to go above and beyond, find some decorative toothpicks with themed banners to stick on top!
If you aren’t doing Whole30, make sure to use cream of coconut, not just coconut milk — this is the secret to achieve a perfect level of creaminess in these baked treats! They’re probably near each other in the grocery aisle, so keep an eye out to make sure you grab the right one.
