Potato Puffs

These are very tasty with a ¾-inch piece of cooked bacon (from about 5 slices total) on top of the cheese. You could also add a little dehydrated green onion, and garlic powder

  • Servings



  • 1

    pint sour cream

  • 4

    eggs, beaten

  • 1

    cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1

    cup crumbled bacon

  • 2

    cups potato flakes (instant mashed potatoes)

  • heavy cream as needed for moisture


Add sour cream to beaten eggs, blend until smooth, and add cheese and bacon. Slowly add potato flakes until a dough-like ball is created. If dry, add heavy cream by the tablespoon until dough ball is soft. Pinch off small balls and heat in a cake pop maker until brown. (You may instead place in the oven at 350 degrees until brown, but you will need to spray the balls with a butter-flavored cooking spray first.) When the cake pop maker is hot, spray with sunflower or vegetable oil. Place 1 dough ball in each well,and cook for 3 minutes, until medium golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
