Potato Puffs

Kevin & I loved these puffs. But we didn’t make them often, as we never kept instant potatoes in the house. Mom & Dad did real potatoes so there was little point in keeping boxed around …

As an adult I still detest boxed potatoes … FAR more than I dislike real potatoes.

Potato Puffs

  • pkg instant mashed potatoes (enough for 4 servings)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 Tbsp snipped fresh parsley

Prepare the potatoes according to directions, except decrease water by 3/4 cup. Cool slightly. Combine the flour, baking powder, & salt; add to potato mixture along with egg, green onion, & parsley. Beat on medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls into deep oil heated to 365 F; fry until puffs are brown (2 to 3 minutes), turning once. Drain on paper towels. Makes 12 to 18 puffs.
