I was so happy to find this recipe. As Easter approaches, my sister and I were just talking about the eggs our Mom made for us years ago. It was in the early 1960's and the recipe was in a woman's magazine. I remember that no one could believe the eggs were made of mashed potatoes. How fun to discover the recipe once again! Thanks.
