A recipe I found and tweaked a bit to my family's taste. I also added an easy cheesetastic 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 give these bite-sized treats great taste. And we liked the cheese dip too. Next time we make these, we may add some red pepper flakes to the potatoes to give 'em even more flavor. Great recipe... we couldn't stop eating these! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
