Don't Lose This Recipe

I love potatoes, I mean, I really do… They are my favorite food, I was a vegetarian for roughly three years, and I basically just ate potatoes. My dad used to call me a potato-arian, and it definitely fit!

look at these! How can you not want to just eat them right through your screen?!

I think that when the Hubby and I make them again we will add some cheese to the middle of the balls to give them a little bit of extra flavor! (Maybe we will even add some bacon, take them up another notch!)
