Last Minute Christmas Appetizer

Cheesy Bacon Potato Puffs

1 cup mashed potatoes (leftover or prepared from instant)

12 oz. pkg of bacon, cooked, crumbled & drained

1 pkg of crescent rolls

1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out crescent rolls, press together diagonal seams, and cut into 24 squares (4x6). Press one square into each hole of a mini muffin tin (24 count). Bake for 7 minutes.

While puffs are baking, mix together mashed potatoes, one cup of cheese, and bacon. Remove puffs from oven and put one tablespoon of tater-cheese-bacon mixture on each puff. (Smoosh if necessary!) Top with remaining half-cup of cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and any visible crescent puff is golden brown.

 

I think these would be particularly tasty served with sour cream (like potato skins) and maybe some chopped chives. Very tasty, very easy!
