  3. Add the eggs along with chopped spinach, cheddar cheese, green onions, salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes. Mix until well combined.
  4. Scoop the potato-egg mixture into the prepared muffin tins filling the cups a little over 3/4 full. Smooth out the top using a spoon.
  5. Bake 25-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove the muffins from the oven and sprinkle each with a cheese topping of your choice.
  7. Return muffins to oven and continue to bake for 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts.
