Did you know you can turn leftover mashed potatoes into donuts? These delicious gluten free mashed potato donuts are so simple and a family-favorite!
I’ve talked about my family’s former tradition of Panera Fridays on my podcast before. It was a tradition my boys and I had since the youngest was in Kindergarten. We’d go every Friday to Panera for breakfast before school. It was such a beloved tradition that we would seek out Panera whenever we were on vacation if we happened to be away on a Friday.
But all that had to change when my oldest started middle school. School started MUCH earlier each day, and there simply wasn’t the time to go across town for breakfast at Panera.
We tried for a while to do donuts at Dunkin’ on Friday. But our local Dunkin isn’t the best, so we gave up. Plus, if we ever wanted to bring Dad along for a visit, THERE ARE NO GLUTEN FREE DONUTS AT DUNKIN’ DONUTS.
Yes, I just used shouty caps because I’m hoping someone at Dunkin’ Donuts will wake up and smell the untapped business opportunity. Even if the only safe option for patients living with celiac disease was a packaged donut, it would be worth offering.
People who eat gluten free like donuts too, ya know?
This whole thing has made me realize that there aren’t enough gluten free donut recipes in the world.
And lemme tell ya… these are gluten free mashed potato donuts are so good. Seriously. I had no idea how they’d turn out but I loved them! And my family loved them as well.
