These stuffed potatoes are actually called 'papas rellenas' which translates straight across to -hold your breathe now - stuffed potatoes. They are typically a Cuban dish, from what I understand, and they are simply mashed potatoes filled with seasoned meat and deep fried.
My papas rellenas have a delicious spiced pork mixture wrapped with mashed potatoes mixed with egg and coated in cornmeal then fried. These guys are a handy first course, appetizer or just a plain old snack - I like to eat them with simple Louisiana hot sauce, Texas Pete or whatever local vinegar hot sauce you like.
