Augratin Potato Cups

Do you love augratin potatoes as much as I do?  These are great for portion control.  Yes I do have to control my portions so that weight loss is easier and it allows me to have things that I like to eat as well.  
Muffin tins are your friend, use them often!




Cut your potatoes this 1/4" thin using a knife or a mandolin.  I used my knife.


Liberally spray muffin tin with cooking spray.  Layer potatoes into each muffin, sprinkle each with a little salt and pepper.  Pour milk over each muffin of potatoes 1/2 full.  Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.  Cover with stick free foil or spray regular foil.  Put muffin tin on a cookie sheet in case of spillage. Place in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes, remove foil and brown tops about 10 minutes.  




Doesn't this look yummy!


How about a bite?

How many does this make? Do you alternate layers of potatoes with cheese?

Hi Donna,

This recipe made 4 muffin cups. Sprinkle each layers with a sprinkle of salt, pepper, flour and a small dab of butter. Finish the top by adding the milk and then the cheese at the end. Be sure to oil the muffin tins really well to prevent sticking!
