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

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2
    Spray cups of muffin pan with no stick spray.
  • 3
    Heat mashed potatoes in microwave.
  • 4
    Fill each muffin cup about 1/3 full with potatoes leaving a dip in the middle.
  • 5
    Place 1 meatball in the dip.
  • 6
    Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  • 7
    Add more potatoes, pressing down to edges of cup and making a slightly rounded peak on the top.
  • 8
    Bake for about 20 minutes or until heated through. This step will take less time if your potatoes and meatballs are well warmed to begin with.
  • 9
    Turn oven temp up to 450 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned.
  • 10
    Run butter knife around edges to make sure they are loose then lift out (I used the knife & a fork and they came right out).
