Recipe by Thomas Danler
This recipe was recently submitted to a news group to which I belong. I think it is very good and hope you like it, too. Preparation time in the kitchen is just a few minutes. When the big meal is through, this is a tasty way to use up the leftover mashed potatoes.

My mother used to make these, and this recipe is very like hers (she never added cheese, though--don't know why, because adding cheese sounds yummy). These are great slathered with butter. Thanks for submitting it.
