Tater Talk April 2022: Celebrate Easter with Idaho® Potatoes

APRIL 2022

Idaho® Potato Brioche Muffins

The yummiest companion to tea or coffee, a batch of Idaho Potato Brioche Muffins will make your morning extra special. Brioche is a traditionally French-style bread made with eggs, yeast and butter. The addition of a mashed Idaho potato in this recipe helps the muffins stay moist and fluffy, giving each bite a soft and velvety texture. We recommend making this recipe a day in advance as the sponge portion takes 2-3 hours to rise. Add a dollop of strawberry or grape jelly before serving to make them extra indulgent.
