This recipe is from the April 2008 Edition of Southern Living. I love these because I am not a deviled egg fan, but I'm intruiged by them (I simply am not a fan of egg) I LOVE potatoes and this would be a great potluck addition! Tip 1: Use a 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop potato pulp Tip 2: Don't over mix the potato pulp with other ingredients, otherwise your mixture will be gummy instead of creamy. Alternative: Instead of the pulp ingredients listed, try adding sour cream, chives, bacon, cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and celery salt for a loaded baked potato flavor! Note: Cooking time does not include chill time (15 mins 30 mins and 2 hours)
