Pretty easy, right? Like I said in the recipe, you dont have to use cheddar cheese..I think pepperjack would be great as well. If you like spice, use serrano peppers instead of jalapenos, or a combination of the two.

Can we agree that all the recipes that hit social media the day after Thanksgiving with ideas on how to use up leftover turkey, green beans, cranberries and casseroles are a little bit silly? I mean if we are being completely honest . why do we need to repurpose broccoli cheese casserole? Det er perfekt.
That said, I make an exception for this recipe each year because mashed potatoes outlast all the other leftovers 100 of the time. Inevitably, they get tossed. This recipe turns would be waste into a delicious grab n go breakfast with just a dump, a mix and a plop.
What are leftover mashed potato puffs?
Theres no need to deep fry these Crispy Baked Potato Puffs to get a perfectly crispy golden brown exterior. Theyre light and soft inside too. Next time you have leftover mashed potatoes, why not whip up a batch?
Use a hand mixer to whip everything well so its nice and light and fluffy. If you have trouble rolling the potato into balls, drop a large spoonful into the coating mixture and roll around. That will help them roll into balls. Depending on the size you make, youll get around 12 16 Baked Potato Puffs. Mr. H asked me to make them smaller so there was a higher ratio of crunchy coating to potato filling. Ill leave that up to you.
My favourite way to enjoy Crispy Baked Potato Puffs is with salmon cakes. Or crab. I mean, hey, youve already got the Panko out already right? Might as well make it a double dip! Speaking of dipping, you could serve these with ketchup or all kinds of creamy sauces like sour cream and mayo with dill, sriracha mayo if you like some heat or just make up your own concoction!
