Potato Pampushki with Cheese Filling

4.0
1 rating
Pampushki are starchy morsels usually served with soup, such as Borsch. What’s unique about these is that they are made using both mashed potatoes and shredded raw potatoes. They are golden and crisp on the outside, but they contain a cheesy filling made from farmer’s cheese, parmesan and chives.
