Potato Puffs Recipe

Potato Puffs Recipe

I give this recipe out often. It's suitable for any meal, so it's a great use of left-over potatoes. From experience, I can recommend Potato Puffs to mothers of young children—when our four youngsters were growing up, I would often fix these to go with their sandwiches. They're good alongside hamburger and a salad, too. My husband and I have lived on the same farm ever since we were married. We run cattle and put up hay.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley or chives
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1. In a bowl, beat egg yolks. Add potatoes, Parmesan cheese, parsley, onion and garlic powder; mix well. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into the potato mixture. Brush eight muffin cups or small ramekins generously with melted butter. Divide potato mixture into cups. Brush remaining butter over potatoes. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve immediately. Yield: 8 puffs.

"I made these potatoes as a side for some rosemary chicken. They turned out wonderful and little did I know, but I made a food my husband loved during a trip to Germany. Bonus points."

"12/24/208 - I had high expectations for this recipe but it turned out very dry and I'm not sure why. Maybe the egg whites? The flavor was good though so I may try the recipe again."
