Recipe by BakinBaby

Sweet taters with a new look. I took a Paula Dean recipe and combined it with Aunt Ruby's tater balls... this is what I came up with.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made these balls for a potluck recently & although I followed the ingredient list faithfully, I did roll the mixture into 12 smaller balls, & that worked very well, since most people, at potlucks, often take smaller portions of more entrees! And, these balls got raves no end, & even if they hadn't, in my book you've got a definite winner of a recipe here! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
