    I think I could eat like a million of these.

  6. Tieghan says:

    Yup, my family would love these!! So good lookin!

  7. Love the idea of potato bites! These wouldn’t last long at my house!

  8. Wow I love potatoes. Fortunately or Unfortunately depending on what my scale told me that morning, this recipe has both bacon and cheese. Yum. No peeling of the potatoes either. Easy and different. I think we have a winner here.

  9. Jill says:

    Ummm easier said than done? I guess I shouldve let my hashbrowns thaw 1st? Because now all my other ingredients have frozen on contact and it is impossible to stir….

    Can I make ahead of time?

    One of our local restaurants has an appetizer called “Pub Tots” that I order every time (and I do mean EVERT TIME) we go. They are to die for and my favorite appetizer. However, they are deep fried and I hate to deep fry. Yesterday I came across your recipe and I ran right out and bought all the ingredients to make. I made them today and they were delicious. The Pub Tots have green onions in them. My husband is not a fan of onions so I substituted dried chives. The nest time I make them (and there will be a next time!) I am going to add a little more bacon and use Bob Evans Hash Brown Potatoes with Onion and Parsley. That will give me the onion flavor I missed. Spot on recipe Megan. Loved it and loved it even better because it is baked. Served them with Chipolte Ranch Dressing. Thank you for sharing and creating.

    This recipe was delicious. I followed the recipe to a tee! Reread it many times. You commented you should get 10-12 balls. Whaaat? Mine were almost twice the size you suggested and I got 21 balls. Things just didn’t add up. I had to add a 2nd egg to try to hold the balls together and that didn’t work well either. If I try this recipe again, I’ll try adding a little flour or bread crumbs.  Otherwise I just created little haystacks. It’s so tasty I want to make something work.

    Didn’t work for me. The recipe didn’t state that the potatoes needed to be thawed, but the frozen potatoes didn’t hold together and the egg froze in the. I tire. I had to throw out the ingredients and had no appetizer to serve.

      Sorry that the recipe didn’t work out for you. The brand that I have in the recipe is for thaw potatoes, but I will make a note in the recipe.

  15. Jacqueline says:

    Can I use par boil potatoes and grate them for this recipe. I like my food fresh not frozen.

  16. Catherine says:

    I made these for supper tonight and both my husband and I loved them, however… I could only find the Simply Potatoes that were cubed has browns with onion, not the O’Brien potatoes. It really is necessary to use shredded has brown potatoes so they form correctly and stay together while cooking. It occurred to me that this is very much like a toasty Funeral Potato ball. Love the taste! I’ll be making them again with shredded hash browns even if I have to add chopped peppers and onions myself! Great recipe. Thanks for sharing it.

    I had trouble with this recipe, and I’m not sure why. When I started putting the bites onto my baking sheet, there was a pool of liquid in the bottom of my bowl, and each bite sat in a pool of liquid, and they were too flat. Could that be because I whisked the eggs, and then whisked in the sour cream before mixing the whole recipe together?
    I also would add more salt.

  18. Colleen Murphy says:

    I like adding chives and sometimes roasted hatchet green chilies. These bites are a family’s favorite for sure!

  19. Lorie says:

    Made this recipe tonight using a container of Idaho spuds from the carton. They came out great. Will definitely make again and try adding chives.

  20. Kirkwood Baker says:

    I couldn’t make this recipe work as written. The mixture wouldn’t hold together. I doubled the egg and sour cream and that was better. I also added chives and salt and pepper. I made the balls bigger (about 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp) and ended up with 30 of them.
