Nearly everyone in the country is now in lock down apart from essential services and this means time at home for the rest of us. With that of course comes extra time on our hands, I hope to create a new recipe most days to share with you all out there.
Today we have a recipe using leftover mashed potato and cheese to a rough butter style dough, I added spring onion but you could leave this out or add different herbs, cheeses, parmesan would be yum! The potato cheese puffs are similar to a scone but the mash potato adds fluffiness to them, you’ll have one and want to go back for more!
