These are so easy to make, When you have those mashed potatoes left, or the baked potatoes you can easily make these little buggers. They are so good, you can even use them as appetizers. by wrapping them in a piece of precooked bacon before putting them in the oven. Or you could dip them in a little beaten egg and roll in shredded cheese- Yum -Yum!!
