Reviews forPotato Balls
"EVERY ONE Loved them.at the end of the night doing clean-up one fell on the floor & the cat ate itAlso when mixing my potatoes ,I mixed in some flour & mixed together. I made over or close to 40 as this was for dinner , about 12 people. I went by feel of the mixture. Also cooked in Deep Fryer and kept warmish/hot in oven. Another occasion I tried doing them the day before & heated in the oven. When trying a new recipes I make extra for my tasting ( for seasoning & even to see if they're heating up at the speed I have them at or do I need to turn up the oven a bit & maybe just throw a pc. of tin foil over them so they don't get over browned"
"my husband just had some and he dipped them in ranch dressing so good I won't be making french fries any longer.our fry sauce is good as well.1 cup sour cream,1 cup ranch dressing and 1/2 cup ketchup.the sauce keeps for about 2 weeks in fridge."
"like this. I will add different types of seasonings next time. Just to give it a less "plain" taste."
