The other day I made a lovely chicken dinner with my favorite mashed potatoes for a side dish. My family is crazy about mashed potatoes, so I made a double batch to make sure everyone would have their bellies full! However, the chicken turned out so delicious, too, that everyone was saving room for seconds. I ended up with a lot of leftover mashed potatoes and I had no idea what to do with all of it. So I did a quick search online and found this tasty looking recipe over at IdeaHacks!
Boy, am I glad I did! These little fried pillows of crispy and gooey goodness are to die for! These come out like a gastro-pub appetizer, they are amazing and surprisingly easy for how intricate they are. It’s pretty obvious that fried mashed potato’s with cheese on the inside and bacon on the outside is going to be something special but these go above and beyond! My son immediately asked if week could have these once a week, and I am tempted to say yes… I’m also definitely going to serve these as appetizers in our next BBQ party!
