Adapted from acozykitchen Food Blog

1 russet potato, peeled
1 sweet potato, peeled
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 shallot, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup sharp aged cheddar cheese, shredded
8 medium eggs

Method:

 1. Generously grease a muffin tin and set aside. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Grate the potatoes and transfer them to a bowl. Sprinkle with kosher salt and allow the shredded potatoes to sit for 10 minutes. Gather the potatoes in a bundle of paper towels and wring dry, removing all the excess water.

3. Transfer the dried potato back to the original bowl & add in the minced shallot, garlic, and seasonings. Mix thoroughly until combined.

4. Spoon around 2 tablespoon of the shredded potato mixture into each muffin cup. Make sure you adequately line the bottom & sides of each cup. Bake for 13 minutes or until the sides appear lightly golden brown. Keep an eye on them!
