Mashed Potato Bites and Cheesy Dip

Christine Schnepp


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 :)

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! The Test Kitchen

All carbs are not evil; it's just that some of them should be eaten less frequently than others. It's not that hard to tell the difference between a good carb...
