Potato Puffs

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

This is an excellent way to use up left-over mashed potatoes but can also be made with cooled instant mashed potatoes. Good as a side dish.

I made these at work, and they are so good. It's an easy recipe, and I think the variations could be endless. I wanted to add cheese (I work at a cheese and butter factory), but thought I better make the original recipe first! The mixture is quite sticky, so I found it was better to use a second spoon to push the puffs off into the oil.
