Crunchy Potato Bites

This is a somewhat less expensive homemade appetizer that looks nice on your hot tray, and tastes good too.  I have used Cheddar cheese instead of Swiss cheese in this recipe from the "Southern Living Big Book of Christmas Baking” with good luck. 
I have prepared these appetizers on a baking sheet; and covered and  refrigerated up to 24 hours, baking right before the party.  Finely chop the ham and green pepper in your food processor.  Crush the corn flakes in a plastic bag, and use a cookie scoop to portion the balls to keep it simple.

  1. sounds excellent = will try on a dry cereal that i don't patricularly like, but saved. in freezer, thank you.

    1. The seasoning is right, and it's a good way to use both potatoes and cereal.
