So I apologize about this entry being a day or so late. With an unfortunate incident involving a blender and stitches, I had trouble getting online. I'll try to share that story with you next week. But Yay! I'm here and ready to show you another new recipe.
Potato Puffs:That question that weighs on everyone’s mind while they’re cleaning out a fridge on the weekend, what to do with those leftover mashed potatoes? I’m not a fan of reheated mashed potatoes; they always taste funny to me. Typically I make dumplings out of them, and add the dumplings to stew or chicken soup.
This time I was making turkey burgers and wanted something yummy to go with them. So I found a recipe for potato puffs.
Potato Puffs10 min of prep time
20-25 min cooking time
· 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes (Mine were leftover red potatoes mashed with the skins)
· 1 egg (beaten)
· ½ cup of parmesan cheese, plus extra for sprinkling
· ½ cup of flour
· ½ Tablespoon of baking soda
· ½ Tablespoon of baking powder
· 2 Tablespoons of garlic powder
· 1 Tablespoon of salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Beat egg before starting with potatoes. I typically only do this so I don’t forget later and add it without beating the egg.
Add leftover mashed potatoes, Parmesan cheese, and beaten egg to a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt. The slowly add dry mixture to potatoes.
Line baking pans with parchment paper. Add dollops of mixture about 2 inches round. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of dollops.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until middle puffs out. It’ll deflate a bit afterwards, it’s OK, still tastes awesome.
