Expert Tips And Tricks
If you think you are the first one to search for baked potato recipes, then trust me when I tell you that you most definitely are not! Although this Baked Potato Balls recipe is amazingly effortless, I may have a few tips that will make the cooking process easier.
Tip 1: Soak your potatoes in cold water before baking to get a crispy outer layer. Soaking will remove the starch and help you achieve some crunchy goodness.
Tip 2: Store your leftovers potatoes in an air-tight container for up to 4 days. You might also think of freezing them. I bet you haven’t thought of that!
Tip 3: Make sure your potatoes are dry before you toss in the spice mix and start baking. You really don’t want to end up with soggy potatoes.
Tip 4: Throw in other spices like chili flakes or red pepper if you are craving a certain taste to your potato balls.

Frequently Asked Questions
Sure you can! Small round potatoes should work fine with this recipe. Peel the skin off (or keep it if you prefer) and par boil the potatoes for about 8 to 10 minutes before baking.
Don’t wrap your potatoes in aluminum foil. This will hold the moisture in and create sort of a “boiled” taste rather than what we are aiming for.
Poking potatoes is usually done to avoid them literally exploding while moisture is trying to seep out. Although it is not obligatory to do so, if you feel the need to I suggest you go for it.
