Delicious – Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside.

Ingredients for Potato Puffs:

  • 12 oz (350 g) cooked potato
  • 1 oz (28 g) butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2½ oz  (70 g) grated cheese
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Fat for deep frying

Method for Potato Puffs:

  1. Mash the potato.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan and add to the potato. Beat in the egg yolk and grated cheese. Season with salt and cayenne pepper.
  3. Whisk the egg white to a stiff froth and fold into the potato mixture.
  4. Drop in teaspoonfuls into deep smoking hot fat and fry until golden brown, crisp and well puffed up.
  5. Drain carefully onto crumpled kitchen roll and serve very hot, dusted with cayenne pepper.

An excellent way to use up any spare mashed potatoes creating a snack. We’ve had these a bit like a Tapas with drinks.
