Crunchy Potato Balls Recipe

Publisher Photo
Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do, so I'm always looking for simple and tasty recipes to feed our growing family (three sons - 8,5 and 7 months). These potato balls make a good snack or appetizer (my two older boys love them with any meal!), and they're a good way to use up leftovers. In fact, I often find myself peeling a few extra potatoes just to make sure there will be leftovers. I've also substituted ground-up hot dogs or sausage for the ham.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2012

"While the ingredients were simple, it took me forever to make all the balls & it really did make exactly what it said. I also used a small cookie scoop. It was great. Next time I am going to add a little chopped onion too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 21, 2011

"Why would you rate a recipe before trying it? So silly. Anyway, this recipe is actually VERY good and only uses a third of a cup of mayo. You can't even taste it. Delicious! Thank you!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2007

"Sounds good, but you lost me at mayonnaise. UGH! I wonder if I can substitute sour cream for the mayo..."
