Paluszki (Polish Little Fingers)

Usually a Polish hors d'ouerve made from mashed potatoes, but I've also seen a breakfast version made from cottage cheese. Best served straight from the oven.

Well Jessica, these were delicious! And your instructions were very clear. What I’d love to know is how or when these are eaten traditionally. Are they served as a snack, as a side dish….? We ate them as a stand alone lunch dish, with sour cream, and with what was I suppose a rather Mediterranean-style salad as a side dish. May sound like an odd combination but the salad really went well with the Paluszki! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
