  1. Prepare mashed potatoes ahead of time and allow them to chill in the fridge. (Potatoes should be cold and stiff, NOT soft and runny.)

  2. Stir in seasonings and mix well.

  3. Line your air-fryer basket (or cookie sheet) with parchment paper. Be sure o poke holes in parchment before placing in the bottom of the fryer.

  4. Using whatever scoop you may have, make ping-pong sized balls of mashed potatoes and drop them in a single layer on the parchment you’ve placed on the bottom of your air fryer. (Or cookie sheet)

  5. Air fry (or bake) at 400 degrees for 20 minutes (may take longer if using your oven)

  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!

  7. Dip, if you like, in your favorite sauce.
