Potato Puffs

I give this recipe out often. It's suitable for any meal, and a terrific use of leftover potatoes. They're great alongside sandwiches or hamburgers. —June Mullins, Livonia, Missouri

    A light potato flavor. Good seasonings. Slightly dry, but will make again.

    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.
