Mashed Potato Muffins

Mashed Potato Muffins (Adapted from Canadian Living)

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (can use all-purpose)
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed potatoes
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup minced green onion
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

Preheat oven to 400

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, oregano and pepper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, potatoes and milk. Pour into the dry ingredients - sprinkle with green onion and red pepper and stir just until combined. Evenly divide the batter between 8 wells of a 12 cup muffin tin lightly coated with nonstick spray - add a little water to the empty wells to prevent them from warping.

Bake until a toothpick placed in the center comes out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs attached, about 13 to 16 minutes. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes before turning the muffins out onto a wire rack.

Makes 8 muffins.
