1
egg
1/4
cup chopped fresh chives

Directions

  1. 1 In medium saucepan, bring 1 cup water, butter and salt to a boil. Add 1 1/3 cups mashed potato mix, 1 egg and chives; mix well. Let stand 30 seconds. Stir. Cool 10 minutes.

Place 1 cheese cube in center of each potato disk. With pancake turner, remove each disk from cookie sheet; pinch potatoes around cheese cube to form ball.

  4. 4 Just before baking, spray coated potato balls with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400°F. for 10 to 12 minutes or until potato coating just begins to brown. Serve immediately.
