Crispy coating surrounds a velvety potato filling in these adorable puffs. They make a perfect side for meats and poultry. Best of all, the recipe makes 2 dozen, so you can use just the number you need for dinner.—Eva Tomlinson, Bryan, Ohio

MY REVIEW

My family loved these! A perfect potato side dish and a great change of pace from mashed or boiled potatoes! Since you can freeze these until you are ready to bake them, the potato puffs are very convenient to make on a busy weeknight! Next time, I'll try adding green onions and bacon bits prior to freezing, for a loaded baked potato taste!

These were really good! I also added some sour cream and chives and it added a lot of good flavor! I thought they could have used more salt and some pepper. I added some after they came out of the oven and they were super yummy!! I will definitely make these again!

These are delicious. They do take some time to make, but are yummy in the end. I added some cream cheese and chives to the potato mixture to kick the flavor up a bit.
