Crispy Mashed Potato Rosettes

Did you all have a good weekend? I certainly did! Mine was filled with lots of sleep, cooking and talking to my husband! He was really happy while we were talking. Usually he’s a pretty happy guy, but for some reason he was in a particularily great mood. I think it had something to do with the hand grenades he gets to practice throwing tomorrow. Haha.

Anyways, this recipe is one I’ve been thinking about making for a while but finally only got around to it yesterday. We had our big family Sunday dinner and made some roast beef. What do you make with roast beef? ¬†Mashed potatoes, of course! And…since I was making the mashers anyways, I thought of throwing them into a piping bag, making rosettes, dabbing them¬†with a little melted butter {…..or a lot :) } and getting them all toasty and delicious under the broiler.

These are tasty little devils.

And addicting.

And evil.

And delicious.

And easy to make.

So next time you find yourself craving potatoes, give these a whirl. They won’t disappoint.

PS- I put salt, pepper, milk, butter and cream cheese into my mashed potatoes. They are the best. EVER. Cream cheese is where it’s at. Amen.

Happy Monday! :)

Ingredients:
4 cups mashed potatoes
3 tablespoons butter

Directions:

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven to broil.

Using a large flower or rosette tip, pipe mashed potatoes into two-inch rosettes. {I used Wilton tip #1–it’s huge.} Spray or lightly dab {with a pastry brush} tops of rosettes with melted butter.

Place under broiler for 2-3 minutes or until edges become crispy and golden. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
