Great potatoes! I didn't have leftover potatoes so used instant (didn't have time to make from scratch) and they still turned out very tasty! Made as written and loved the half-melted chunks of cheese mixed in the spuds. Will make these with our leftover potatoes! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #72.

Great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! I had shredded cheddar, so I mixed shredded sharp and mild cheddar and rolled them into a ball to push into the potatoes. Also, I used shredded parm instead of grated.....even with the substitutions for what I had these turned out delicious! So happy I made them! Made for Market Tag game.

Yeah for leftovers! Bring it on. Dh and I ate the whole thing. Could be increased, made ahead to impress guests with a meal where you are not making gravy. I made as posted except I pressed in some lovely Bacon Jam into the potatoes. This is a true keeper. TY BK for posting.
