Recipe by LAURIE

Tasty way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Great instead of french fries with sandwiches, especially a big juicy hamburger!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been trying to find a recipe for the Bavarian Inn's potato cheese puffs in Frankenmuth, MI for YEARS!! Not to mention all the time I've spent trying to duplicate it. This is it!!
