“Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: Growing up, leftovers never went to waste in my house. Whenever we had leftover mashed potatoes, my Mom used them to bake homemade bread. My memories of that delicious bread inspired this recipe. It's a meal in a muffin! They are hearty and savory while still being tender and crumbly. Substituting mashed potatoes for some of the flour gives these muffins a rich flavor and moist texture. The light tang of the goat cheese and subtle smokiness from the bacon round out the big flavors in these little muffins. Great as a meal by themselves or alongside eggs.”
