Potato Puffs

Anyone who has read more than one post on this blog knows that I have several obsessions; one of them is potatoes, in any form.  Another is using left overs in creative and delicious ways.

This is potato and a great way to use left overs! 🙂  That makes me happy.  What more need I say?

These puffs really are light and would be good finger food as well as a side.  A half recipe makes eight puffs.
