Crispy baby potato bites

Crispy baby potato bites

I realize that I could just update my other post, for crispy mushrooms (found here), but these were so good, and I used different flavors......Well, it just needed it's own post.
My kids ate the whole recipe with me, and it left us all wanting more.  That is always a good thing.
These would be really good for snacks at a party.  Make some different dips (although ketchup was really good)  You could also make these spicy by adding red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to the mix.
Here are the simple ingredients and instructions.


Ingredients

1 lb (or more) baby potatoes, washed, and sliced in half
1/2 cup masa flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 cup water
1 cup of panko bread crumbs


2 large bowls
a spoon to stir
a whisk
a baking sheet with parchment paper lined

a wire rack if you have it

Preheat oven to 425°f 


Dry ingredients added to a large bowl



Baby potatoes



Sliced



Whisk the dry ingredients to blend



Add 1 cup water, and whisk until smooth.  You want it to be the consistency of pancake batter.
Add your sliced potatoes, and stir to cover them all in the batter.



In another large bowl, add your panko bread crumbs.



I made a little production line, wet to crumbs to pan.



After you get all the potatoes covered in batter, move them to the bread crumbs.  Cover and press the crumbs in.



If you are using a wire rack, place the slices on the rack.  If not, place the slices cut side down on the parchment paper. (you could use a silicone mat too)



Place the potatoes in your hot oven, and bake for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, remove and turn the slices over.  Put back in the oven and bake another 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes (trust me, you cannot eat them right now anyways)



Serve while hot.  You can serve with BBQ sauce, Ketchup, or just on their own.
I hope you give these a try.

  1. Hi Michael,
    I have a question about the masa flour. Is this just masa or is there a masa flour that I need to look for to make this? Thank you for all you do! Love your recipes!

    1. There is a masa Harina, usually sold in a 2-5lb. bag. It is usually in the Mexican section of most stores. It is super fine corn flour. The brand name is Maseca. Hope that helps. :)

  2. Thank you Michael! I'm sending my husband to the store with your explanation! :) I'm planning out our monthly dinners and many of your recipes are in our rotation. Rededicating ourselves to eating WFPB. Thank you for all our recipes!
