Here's a family favourite - there are a number of versions around - this is
one we have used for some time
Peter's Garlicy Potato Puffs
You can vary the Garlic to taste - men usually like this following mixture
but it may be too strong for ladies.
2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup mashed parsnip
11/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon flour
2 Tbs either Potato starch (preferred) or Corn starch
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/8 tsp Dry Mustard
2 eggs beaten
1 tablespoon chopped parsley - more if wished
Little milk to dampen the mix slightly
2 Tbs finely chopped chives
2 Tbs light sour cream
1/8 tsp Celery Salt
Pre-heat oven to 425°F.
Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and allow to stand until needed.
Add all remaining ingredients to the potatoes (reserving a little of the egg
for the wash) and mix well.
Add a little milk to the mix if needed - it should be stiff enough to retain
the heap reasonably high
Pile a heaped Tbs onto a greased baking sheet - this amount will make about
Keep your finger wet and make a crater in the top of each pile with your wet
Mix the chives and sour cream and add a teaspoon of this mix into each crater
Brush with beaten egg wash
Light sprinkle of paprika if wished
Bake in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Brown
the tops with the grill if necessary
