Add the Parmesan cheese, milk, salt and pepper and use a potato masher to make a smooth mash.

Take 4 – 6 ramekins and lightly grease them. Alternatively, you can use silicon moulds like I have done and place them in a muffin tray.

Pre-heat the oven to 200˚C

Mix the mashed potato with the egg and the baking powder.
