Crispy Potato Puffs Recipe
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
- 4 pounds cubed peeled potatoes (about 11 cups)
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1-1/2 cups crushed cornflakes
