Ground Pork and Potato Balls

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Debbie in Florida

I got this recipe from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that my mom bought in 1969. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of chopped green onions, but I am not a big fan so I substituted with 1 tablespoon of onion flakes. This is great with mashed potatoes. I tried this for the first time tonight and my husband really surprised me not only did he go back for seconds....but thirds also!!!

Delicious! It snowed today and this was the perfect comfort food. I've made this several times, and I always feel they are a big soggy. I figured out today that if you squeeze the shredded potato to get the moisture out before you add it in it really helps. I also added 3 cloves of garlic. It tasted perfect!
