Reviews for Crunchy Potato Mounds
"used crushed potato chips instead of cornflakes..could use a variety of meats...pepperoni..bacon...even cooked crumbled burger...etc. Also, could play around with the dip...more or less of the ingredients... great little appetizer to "adjust" to your likes!"
"I need to add: I used turkey ham instead of regular. They were even better cold."
"This is an easy recipe to follow. If I did it again I would make the sauce a little sweeter and also maybe find something else for the breading. The cornflakes seem a little chewy and a little too sweet. Over all a really good finger food."
