A recipe I found and tweaked a bit to my families taste. I also added a easy cheese-tastic dipping sauce to the side. These are so sinful and delicious! Enjoy :)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe turns leftover mashed potatoes into something super tasty! The mustard and pretzels gives these bite sized treats great taste. And I liked the cheese dip too. Next time I make these, I may add some red pepper flakes to the the potatoes to give 'em even more flavor. Great recipe... I couldn't stop eating these!
