  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 400°F or until golden brown.
  6. Cool for 5 minutes and dish and serve warm with sour cream.

Instant mashed potatoes – Yes! You can cheat and use instant mashed potatoes to make these.

Making it ahead – You should be able to pre-mix all the ingredients the night before and refrigerate them to bake the next day.

Eggs – Can this recipe be made without eggs? Unfortunately, not. The eggs are what make the mashed potato puffs rise, otherwise, you’re just baking some loaded mashed potatoes.

Freezing and reheating – Mashed potato puffs can be frozen for up to 2-3 months. To reheat, microwave from frozen for about 1 minute.
