Mashed Potato Bites Ingredients

Mashed Potato Bites Instructions

  1. First, PREHEAT oven to 400oF.
  2. In a saucepan, PREPARE Pioneer Country Gravy Mix to package instructions.
  3. Next, ADD instant mashed potatoes and fold together until evenly combined. Allow the mixture to cool for 3-5 minutes or until 140oF.
  4. INCORPORATE eggs, 1 at a time, waiting until each egg is incorporated before adding the next egg.
  5. Then, FOLD in cheddar cheese.
  6. TRANSFER to a large piping bag fitted with a ½ -inch star piping tip and pipe 1-inch stars onto to a prepared baking sheet, spacing them about ½ -inch apart.
  7. BAKE for 10 minutes or until golden brown. 
  8. Finally, REMOVE from oven and garnish with bacon and chives while still warm.

Time Saving Tips

According to Pioneer’s Head of Research & Development Chef Brian Mannett, there are a few key ways to save time in the kitchen:

  1. Prep. Pre-chopping vegetables, pre-baking bread, you name it! The more you can do ahead of time the better!
  2. Partial Cooking. Some dishes can even be cooked part of the way through, and then reheated closer to dinner time! Simply undercook your dish and then close to serving quickly reheat to finish cooking! This is something my family has always done especially with stuffings, mac and cheese, and corn pudding.
  3. Set out your turkey. Room temperature turkey cooks faster and tastes better!
  4. Gravy. Gravy is a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving ingredients list and not just for the mashed potatoes. Use Pioneer Country Gravy to quickly add flavor during the cooking process.
