Potato Zucchini Kugel Cupcakes

My name is Amy and I blog over at What Jew Wanna Eat. I am thrilled to be a guest blogger on Cook Kosher! Although I do not keep kosher myself, I love Jewish food and feature my Bubbe’s best recipes on my site. Please stop by and check out other creations including pumpkin hummus, home-made bagels and a to-die-for matzah ball soup that event my gentile friends request by name! But keep in mind that not all recipes on my site are kosher. With that said, what could be more fun than cupcakes? I can’t think of a thing! Here is a healthy kosher creation even kids will enjoy: potato zucchini kugel cupcakes. To make my cupcakes healthier, I used half potatoes and half zucchini. That way, I can eat two without guilt! Topped with a little Greek yogurt "frosting" and scallion "sprinkles", this makes a great dairy side dish, or it is parve on its own. Enjoy!
