*Mashed Potato Doughnuts*

This recipe is great if you have left-over mashed potatoes! It seems odd but it tastes great. Enjoy!

These doughnuts are remarkably light. This is a really easy (and tasty!) recipe. From now on, I'm going to make sure I make extra mashed potatoes just so I have leftovers! The Test Kitchen
