I don't know about you guys but around these parts most of our nights have been consumed with watching the World Series. (When your husband is from Texas and they make it to the World Series, you don't really argue.) So if you're like us and you're looking for an appetizer to pair with your beer for the big game, these cheesy potato balls (that the boys have nicknamed The. Balls.) are quite the crowd pleaser!
8 baking potatoes
1/4 cup minced onion
8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces sour cream
2 T butter, softened
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Bake potatoes at 350 for an hour and a half. Let cool. Peel and shred the potatoes (we used a ricer, but you can just use a fork if you don't have one).
Mix cream cheese, sour cream, shredded cheese, onions, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add in shredded potatoes and mix.
Scoop out spoonfuls (you can use an ice cream scoop but we didn't). Roll in parmesan/corn flake mixture. Line up on cookie sheet.
Bake at 425 for 35 minutes. Pair with your favorite brew and tune in to your favorite team. In our case,GO RANGERS!
