This recipe comes from the Taste of Home magazine/website. I used to absolutely love that magazine and their recipes are delicious!
We used to make these all the time with homemade mashed potatoes and the kids all loved them so I might make them sometime soon because it's been a really long time since we've had them!
I personally replace the cheddar cheese with 4-pizza cheese or 6-pizza cheese mix (whatever I have at home) and change some other little things to suit or tastes so the recipe reflects that!
They're easy to make and taste great!
