Crunchy Potato Bites (and some new ink!)

Would you believe me if I told you I actually made these five months ago, and am just now getting around to sharing them? It’s true. I brought these to Jamie’s house for ThanksLiving last year. Shame on me for not sharing them with you guys sooner!

Speaking of things I want to share with you, I got a new tattoo on Saturday! Then, on Sunday I took it for a hike…

Do you see those teeny-tiny houses way down at the bottom right? That’s where we started. And this shot was taken only like halfway up the mountain.

So, what I’m saying in this: Not only do I have a neck tattoo, I also climb mountains. I am the most badass person you know! :)

Here’s the close-up of my new ink I shared on Instagram on Saturday, when it was brand new…

 Can you tell I’m proud of my new ink?

Okay, so Crunchy Potato Balls!

They’re easy to make, and are a fun appetizer or finger food. You could dip them in plain ol’ ketchup or fancy it up a bit. I’m thinking a Sriracha-Ketchup would be delightful! They’re also good just on their own, honestly, sprinkled with some salt and pepper.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups chilled, leftover mashed potatoes
  2. 1 cup shredded vegan cheese
  3. 1/4 cup vegan mayo
  4. 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  5. 2 tablespoons AP flour
  6. 1 1/4 cups crushed corn flakes
  7. 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  8. S&P
Instructions
  1. Combine the potatoes, cheese, mayo, mustard and flour. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  2. Combine the corn flakes and sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Shape the potato mixture into 1" balls, then roll in the corn flake mix. Place on baking sheet (use parchment paper for best results!), and sprinkle with S&P.
  3. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, and serve hot with dipping sauce of choice.
Notes
  1. If you want to make these ahead, you can prep the balls and then freeze them!
