I love potato balls! I first tried them at Tokyo Tokyo and they were great. I know it is easy to make just didn’t have time to make them. I am pregnant and craving for potatoes, its like potatoes are all I wanted to eat. So, I finally decided to make my favorite potato balls from my favorite Japanese fast food restaurant.
Potato balls are made of mashed potatoes. So, they are carbs and loaded with carbs, my comfort food. These potato balls are tasty and wonderful as snacks and appetizer. They are also easy to make.
Mashed potato balls are great for thanksgiving and Christmas too! In fact, if you have lots of leftovers from the holidays, you can make them into potato balls.
This potato balls is my own recipe, it is not Tokyo Tokyo’s potato balls recipe. But, I think they taste the same. I think! Anyway, let me know what you think as I love hearing and learning from other people.
Here’s my potato balls recipe, enjoy cooking!
