Baked Potato Poppers!!!!!!

Recipe repost👍

When we think of poppers we think of fried mozzarella or the like, right? Not these!  There are super yummy and I made mine a little larger than the recipe said so make em smaller if you like :)..I guess poppers should be small?. Yummy!

Mine were More than a bite poppers!

Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,


2 large russet (baking potatoes)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 T cornstarch
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Ketchup, salsa, or pizza sauce

Heat oven to 425 degrees with rack in middle of oven.   Put in a rimmed baking sheet in the oven when it is pre heated.

Peel and grate potatoes ( I used large mozzarella side of grater)and transfer to large bowl. It was done super quickly.  They were more shredded in my opinion)then grated.   Boil approx 2 cups water and cover potatoes.  Allow to stand for 10 minutes..

Drain the potatoes in a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water..  Squeeze potatoes to remove excess moisture, and transfer back to large bowl.  Add flour, cornstarch, salt, pepper and egg yolk and fold in the potatoes.

Place Panko bread crumbs on large dish or waxed paper.  I use wax paper.  Easy to dispose.

With wet hands pinch off tablespoons or a little larger( mine were larger) of the potato mixture, form into balls and coat with the panko crumbs.

Carefully remove the hot baking sheet from the oven and coat with 2 T olive oil.  Quickly transfer the poppers onto the baking sheet and drizzle with remaining  olive oil. Bake for about 30 minutes, flipping half way through,(once) until golden brown and crispy.  Serve with salsa, ketscup or pizza sauce.  Yum

Note:  I doubled recipe!  That's how good they were!!!!  I had planned on freezing some.  All gone!!  It was our lunch :)  Great idea for an appetizer.  Make ahead and reheat for a few seconds in microwave....
