A great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. These doughnuts are light and fluffy. The doughnuts are great for breakfast or as a snack anytime.

I got 36 of these little delights...The first load from the fryer I coated in sugar as suggested...From then on out it was cinnamon/sugar in a bag, all the way...Thanks for a quick, easy recipe...
