Here's a delightful way to use leftover mashed potatoes! These puffs are easy to make, and my family prefers them to french fries. Children enjoy them plain, buttered or drizzled with honey or maple syrup. My grandkids expect Potato Puffs on the menu whenever they come to my house!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2014

EVERY ONE Loved them.at the end of the night doing clean-up one fell on the floor & the cat ate itAlso when mixing my potatoes ,I mixed in some flour & mixed together. I made over or close to 40 as this was for dinner , about 12 people. I went by feel of the mixture. Also cooked in Deep Fryer and kept warmish/hot in oven. Another occasion I tried doing them the day before & heated in the oven. When trying a new recipes I make extra for my tasting ( for seasoning & even to see if they're heating up at the speed I have them at or do I need to turn up the oven a bit & maybe just throw a pc. of tin foil over them so they don't get over browned

like this. I will add different types of seasonings next time. Just to give it a less "plain" taste.
