Combines Mashed Potatoes with Pepperjack Cheese & Spinach

Top Review by Darkhunter

Like Bergy, I thought these needed a little more zip. I decided to follow Bergy's advice also on the flour. I didn't roll them in it, at all, and they turned out fine. If you like spinach, you'll like these little appies. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Mary. Made for kck's forum.
