Idaho + Potatoes = LOVE. Not too long ago we visited McCall, ID where there was a sweet little bakery called Stacey Cakes. Out of this bakery came the most amazingly scrumptious Loaded Baked Potato Muffins ever. I knew immediately that I would try and re-create them in my tiny silver Airstream kitchen. They truly are the perfect to go snack anywhere, anytime. —Monica Bennett

  • Makes approx. 12 muffins
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups cold mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup grated onion
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup cooked, chopped bacon (reserving 2 tablespoons of fat)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions/scallions
  • 2 tablespoons reserved bacon fat
In This Recipe
  1. In a large bowl, stir the eggs into the potatoes.
  2. In a separate (smaller) bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder and add this to your potato mix.
  3. Fold in the bacon fat, bacon, cheese and green onions.
  4. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray and fill almost to the top (they won't rise much).
  5. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes if you are using large muffin tins or for 15-20 for smaller tins.
  6. Bake until the edges become a beautiful golden color :) Serve warm or cold - delicious either way.

They came out great, except I have macular degeneration in right eye and thought I had gone totally blind not being able to figure out when to add the grated onion and the sour cream. So, I just threw both in and prayed.

FYI: Your instructions don't mention when to add the grated onions or sour cream.

I have been meaning to make breakfast muffins this week (full on egg, bacon style, not just bran or fruit) and I think this would be great with an egg baked in the center as well!

These sound really good, and how perfect that you made them in an airstream kitchen!
