  • Au Gratin Potato Balls

    If you like potatoes then you will love these!

    My changes to the main recipe

    4 T. butter
    Chipotle cheddar cheese

    After I scooped out a small tray (using my cookie scoop) I thought they looked a little plain so I added some paprika and cayenne pepper to the Parmesan cheese. Not only did that make them look nicer it added so much more flavor. Next time Ill add chopped jalapenos.

    8 large baking potatoes
    1/3 cup dried onion
    8 ounces cream cheese - may use low fat
    8 ounces sour cream - may use low fat
    2 tablespoons butter
    salt - to taste
    fresh ground black pepper - to taste
    parmesan cheese - for coating balls

    Bake potatoes, either in oven or microwave, Cool, peel and shred. (I use shredder on my Salad shooter) In a large bowl combine dried onion, sour cream, cream cheese, butter and seasonings. Mix in shredded potatoes until well combined.

    Take an ice cream scoop and dip out mixture and roll into a ball. Roll the potato ball in Parmesan cheese until well coated and place on a cookie sheet. Continue making balls until all mixture is gone. Cover and freeze. Once frozen the balls can be placed in plastic bags or containers and stored in freezer.

    To use, remove as many as needed and place on a cookie sheet. Bake in 350F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned.

    Original poster's hint: I have on baked all the potato balls at the same time. Cooled and then placed in the freezer. To use, if you choose to do it this way, then just reheat in the microwave. These are delicious, and a family favorite.
