    LAURIE's Note:

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

      These were very good! I had actually packed up both of my deep fat fryers to get rid of, but unpacked one of them after making these in my wok (I decided that wouldn't be a safe alternative for deep frying in the future). I was thinking that we rarily deep-fry foods as I tend to get sick from too many fried foods to begin with, but after making these, I guess we'll be having more deep-fried than I was thinking. My family loved them! I used co-jack (monterey jack/colby blend) cheese in these this time. I will experiment with various cheeses in the future. I didn't have any 'left-over' mashed potatoes, so I boiled, mashed and chilled some fresh ones. They made a really nice side dish. Thanks for sharing this recipe Laurie!
