Potato, Spinach, Cheese Balls - For Callisto

Callisto, your post re mashed potato pancakes/patties not holding together
Potato Pancakes Question

This is the recipe I had in mind - if you (or the members here) would like to give it a try. You could omit the spinach & go with a sharp cheddar cheese & Paprika instead of nutmeg. See what you think.

Oh, amy, those look fantastic! Either for a side dish, or minis, as appetizers!

They will definitely be part of one of my holiday appetizer platters this year!

Thanks!

Lee

Amy, looks like a nice recipe. I'm not real good with volume math so if I wanted to use leftover mashed taters how much would that be in cups? I tend to make mashed taters in larger than we can eat at meal amounts because the family likes to reheat them and throw add-ins (Chili, cheese, sour cream, ham, broccoli etc).

Lee, hadn't thought of appys. Kewl idea. For a main dish side, I would make them larger than 1" - maybe use an ice cream scoop

Jabbur, not sure how many cups. Not great with math/volume myself. I would go by feel/eye. For leftover mashed taters, you could try adding a beaten egg or two, add in your fillings, form in balls or patties & dust with flour. You might put them on a baking sheet or in muffin tins. Just a thought/idea. Love the broc, ham, sour cream, etc add-ins. Maybe add some chopped scallions or onions in place of spinach

I'm going to guess and say 4 Idaho potatoes would be roughly 4 cups of mashed, if not more, really! But that's probably a pretty close guess? You think?

That sounds pretty right on the nose to me.

Here's a potato, crab cake, artichoke appy I love:

Crab, Artichoke and Potato Croquettes video and other American videos at 5min

The Lemon Caper Butter Sauce sounds like a yummy topper - w a side of avocado.
