I was looking for a recipe to use my leftover mashed potatoes, and this is the one I chose, because it was baked instead of fried. I used onion powder instead of onions, because I wanted to pipe them onto a cookie sheet instead of put them into a dish. I also sprinkled a little paprika on top for color. They only took about 14 minutes to cook, since they were in much smaller portions. They were pretty enough to serve to guests! They were delicious while they were hot, not so great after they cooled, hence the serve immediately at the bottom of the recipe! Thanks for posting another great recipe NurseDi!
