IF you BAKE the potatoes before peeling them instead of boiling them, the mixture is a bit drier and sticks together better. Also, I tried rolling them in nuts(pecans) and in a mixture of nuts a...

YUM! This recipe is really good! Making the potatoes into balls was a little challenging as mentioned, but after chilling it in the fridge for a while, it was workable. The only problem I had wa...
