Original recipe yields 10 poofies

Directions

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry until cool enough to handle.
  2. Peel the potatoes, and mash until smooth while they are still hot. Add the butter, Cheddar cheese, garlic, and cilantro, mash until the ingredients are incorporated, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Form the mashed potatoes into 10 balls, and slightly flatten between the palms of your hands.
  3. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and grease with cooking spray. Cook the poofies 5 at a time until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining poofies. Poofies are best served warm.

Try adding more cheese and then rolling into balls and placing in the fridge for about 30 mins to cool and kind of solidify a bit. Then quickly dip in beaten egg white and then roll in seasoned breadcrumbs and then fry or deep fry, tastes much like the potato bites at Arbys... Yum!!!

These were way easier than I thought they would be. I used 3 big potatoes and had more than 10 poofies. Loved the incorporation of the cilantro. Cooked them in a non stick skillet so I didn' t need the butter/oil to fry them. Pretty tasty but needed more salt after cooking...

mmm these were good. I peeled the potatoes before boiling and didnt add cilantro, because im not a huge fan of it, but added chives instead. I used colby cheese and it was Delicious. I also made a green onion dip to dip these in!mmm wonderful, thank you, i now love potatoes!
