Homemade potato bites made from mashed potato popped in ice cube moulds, frozen then baked until golden brown for a healthier homemade alternative to potato waffles or smileys!
Someone mentioned this idea in a frugal cooking Facebook group I’m on and I immediately trotted down to IKEA for some of their silicone ice cube trays (they are a total bargain at 95p each too).
Cheap and healthier than the store bought alternative – double win!
A great way with leftover mash, and completely customisable too, try adding other veggies or seasonings like garlic powder. They’d be great with carrot mashed in too, or sweet potato!
Apparently these are syn free on slimming world too if anyone is following their plan.
They are delicious, and will be a permanent feature in my freezer from now on, perfect for those nights when the kids need a quick dinner!
How To Make Homemade Potato Bites:
1. Use leftover mash, or make up some mash potato to your normal recipe. I boil potatoes until tender then mash with a bit of vegan butter, salt, pepper and a tiny splash of almond milk but you can just mash them plain if you prefer.
2. Spoon the mash into ice cube trays and bung in the freezer. Once frozen you can pop them out of the moulds and store them in freezer bags to save space.
3. Place the on a non stick baking sheet and spray or brush with a little oil. Sprinkle with salt / pepper if you wish and bake at 200*C (fan 190*C) for about 20 minutes until lightly golden.
Hope you enjoy these 🙂
