Potato Bites With Cheese and Sweet Corn, a great starter with only a few ingredients. Perfect to share with the whole family.
I must admit that l am guilty of throwing away leftover food sometimes. How wrong that is! Leftovers can be transformed into a completely different and spectacular dish that tastes so great.
I love potatoes and l could easily and happily survive only on potatoes, and there are countless ways of cooking them. Mashed potatoes are sheer goodness, so creamy and tasty.
The only problem is that it is best to serve them immediately, as later on the taste won’t be as nice. But, as usual, l tend to cook way too much and inevitably there’s always some left.
I also had some sweet corn and was not quite sure how to use it, so l decided to make these lovely bites. l would lie if l say l love cheese. Love doesn’t even come close, l adore cheese. Cheddar cheese is by far my favourite type of cheese. Many of my dishes have cheese, it’s hard not to use it. But do feel free to use any other cheese, as these bites will taste great with any type.
Mashed potatoes can be used in countless of leftover recipes, from mashed potato and tuna patties, to fish pies. It’s a lot better to make your own, rather than buy it ready-made, it’s a lot more flavourful and the consistency is usually a lot creamier.
One thing YOU MUST AVOID when you make mashed potatoes is using a food processor or blender. It is best to mash them with a potato masher, otherwise the texture is ruined, and the mash becomes pretty much disgusting.
The secret to make it nice and fluffy is using butter and milk/cream. Oh, my! This is pure heaven, I can’t think of comfort food without mashed potatoes, the two of them go hand in hand.
Do try these bites, they are great, and go well with any sauce. Little ones will definitely ask for more.
