"Incredibly light and tasty. These were a fantastic way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. The only guess was what is considered a "moderate oven". I used 350 F on a convection oven, so I would recommend 375 to 400 on a conventional oven for 15 to 20 minutes. We prepared the recipe exactly as it is written, and it was great. I am sure that you could add cheese, bacon, and other seasonings to suit your personal taste, but I would recommend making them just like the original recipe before you change anything. Simple and quick, so if you are in a hurry, this recipe is for you."- timgraham1

ageremia626 3 months agoI made these to go with dinner tonight and they were DELICIOUS! I used instant mashed potatoes and also added in some olive oil along with the egg. I sprayed the top with some cooking spray. I baked them at 400 degrees for about 35-40 minutes. They were perfectly golden on the outside and creamy on the inside. I will definitely make these again! So light and good!

smarti413 2 years agoThese were really good. We made one batch as directed & another on breaded with seasoned panko bread crumbs. Both were awesome!

Pyritcid 2 years agoLoved this idea. I actually mixed the potatos with leftover couscous and some seasonings, and baked at 425 until golden brown. They were great, even my two toddlers loved them!
Josuejulie 4 years agoI made these. They were great! I mashed potatoes with sour cream, spices, sambal chili sauce, onions, green onions & garlic. I then dipped round spoonful size balls of potatoes into egg & then dipped in crushed corn flakes. I laid out on cookie sheet sprayed with PAM. I added additional spices & sprayed with olive oil, then stuck them in the 400 degree preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes. They were crisp on the outside & soft on the inside. My husband & I loved them & will definitely make again!!
sunsun88 4 years agoI rolled the balls in crushed Special K cereal after bathing them in the egg, which turned out to be pretty good! (I'd recommend trying it!) Recipe lacked precise time and temp. but I'm using 400 degrees so far for 20-25 minutes (I want them to crisp up more). However, it lets you be creative! :) Thanks for posting!
CayceQuilter 6 years agoA terrific use for left-over mashed potatoes! I made mine larger and cooked them at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. They were nowhere near as brown or crispy as the photo. They were more like soft biscuits than 'tater tots.' Perhaps cooking them longer would be better. However, they were delicious and my husband especially liked them.
weeezer0421 7 years agoMade this recipe last night with dinner. It would have been more helpful had the person posting said what temp to actually cook these at considering at 350 which is at moderate and after almost an hour they still were not browned like in the photo. The ones in the photo look as if they were deep fried! I would not even give this a star if I had that option, sorry!!!
promfh 8 years agoLightly spray the puffs. I squeezed them out of a pastry bag and dusted them with potato flakes. After baking in a hot oven they were almost like 'tater tots' but without the extra fat.
