Kids will love these crunchy baked potato bites dipped in ketchup or other favorite sauce. A great way to use leftover mashed potatoes and ham.

  • Total Time: 45 mins


2 cups Very Stiff Mashed Potatoes
2 cups Finely Chopped Cooked Ham
1 cup (4 Ounces) Shredded Swiss Cheese
⅓ cup Mayonnaise
1 tsp Prepared Mustard
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
3½ cups Cornflakes, crushed
Ketchup, or sauce of choice


In bowl, combine all ingredients except cornflakes; chill. Heat oven to 350F. Shape chilled mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in crushed cornflakes. Place on well-greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes until crispy. Serve hot with ketchup or other favorite dipping sauce.

Helpful Tips:

Different cereals can be used instead of the cornflakes. Kids really love this recipe...1/2 Cup shredded Swiss, Cheddar or Emmathal cheese can be added to the potato mixture. Can be served with any sauce of choice..salad dressings like Blue Cheese, or Ranch go well too!
