Leftover Mashed Potato Cheesy Bites

Cheesy Leftover Mashed Potato Bites

In my opinion, leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. And to be honest, I actually like my turkey sandwich the next day a little better than I like it the day of. Maybe it’s because it contains no family craziness and hubub, and most of all, minimal cleanup.

However, sometimes, you can only take so much mashed potatoes and gravy and reheated turkey. This recipe, while using leftover mashed potatoes doesn’t have to. I would probably make it just for fun and deliciousness.
