Wonderful drop doughnuts! I had to use a gluten free flour mix since I can't have wheat. These turned out awesome and the gluten eaters couldn't tell any difference!! Yeah.

I had some mashed potatoes left over tonight and did not want to throw them out... this was a simple recipe (I had everything in the house!) that was easy to prepare and I love them! Thank you~
