"This recipe is great for leftover mashed potatoes. From the recipe collection of Bird's sister Kathy. I have also made it using instant mashed potatoes."

Ready In:
12 puffs




  • Mix all ingredients well. Cover and refrigerate for at least a few hours (up to 2 days). Note: if using leftover mashed potatoes, do this the evening you make them fresh, and then refrigerate the mixture.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F Using a piping bag with a large decorative tip (or cut the tip from the bottom of a Ziploc bag), pipe approximately 1/4 cup each of the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet 1 inch apart.
  • Spray rosettes with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with a bit more paprika. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until heated through.

  1. Since I really just wanted to make a few of these puffs as a test run for another time, I did cut the recipe in half & used some boxed garlic mashed potatoes that I'd prepared previously! And since I like my mashed potatoes on the stiffer side . . . well, that's what I used! Unique, easy-to-make, tasty & satisfying, & definitely something I now plan to make for company in the future! Do love your recipes! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipes]
  2. I used parmesan cheese instead of cheddar, but otherwise made as directed. Mine didn't puff up much, but kinda melted. They were still very tasty though! They are simple to make too. Thanks for sharing!
