Cheesy Potato Puff Recipe

These are the highest, fluffiest, tastiest potatoes I've ever had. They can be made a day ahead and refrigerated until ready to bake. This dish is Mom's specialty, and we all especially love the part along the edge of the casserole dish that gets golden brown. -Alyson Armstrong, Parkersburg, West Virginia

"I have been making this for years. Since I found this in my new Taste of Home magazine maybe 12 years ago? It is so light and fluffy and not to cheesy. I love it with meatloaf and chicken dishes especially."

"These were really good. I made a half recipe using up some leftover mashed potatoes. They already had milk, butter, salt and pepper added. I heated them in the microwave, then added a little extra milk and 2T butter, some cheese and stirred together, then folded in 1 egg. They were really creamy, puffed nicely. We enjoyed them!"
