Potato Puffs

Debra Galloway


I wanted a new way to use leftover mashed potatoes. I thought individual servings would be a fun way to do them and would allow for more surface area to brown! I added meat & cheese so I only needed to make a veggie on the side.

How to Make Potato Puffs

  • 2Spray cups of muffin pan with no stick spray.
  • 3Heat mashed potatoes in microwave.
  • 4Fill each muffin cup about 1/3 full with potatoes leaving a dip in the middle.
  • 5Place 1 meatball in the dip.
  • 6Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  • 7Add more potatoes, pressing down to edges of cup and making a slightly rounded peak on the top.

  • 9Turn oven temp up to 450 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned.
  • 10Run butter knife around edges to make sure they are loose then lift out (I used the knife & a fork and they came right out).
