This is a meal for the kiddies, something my mom used to make. It's a good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. My son was skeptical,but after trying them,decided that they were pretty good.

I gave this 5 stars. My grammy used to make these. She would add chopped chives to the potatoes and top with american cheese and bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe. Christine (internetnut)

I can't believe I stumbled on this recipe here. This is one of my very favorite comfort foods from childhood. I still make if for myself sometimes. Simple, tasty and just what the doctor ordered when you have leftover hotdogs or mashed potatoes. Yum!
