Potato Poppers

I wanted to take some black and white pictures of the kids at the beach and figured it was a great opportunity to hit Stephanie's Bakery in Ocean Beach. I love the strudel at Stephanie's but haven't been there in a long time. Turns out that they have started serving lunch in my absence.

We ordered a 14" plain cheese pizza. It was ok. I think that it could have been cooked a little bit longer. The crust should have been a bit more golden and crispy underneath. I like my own pizza better. It's nice to have a place to buy a vegan pizza even if it's not exceptional.

For dinner I made the Potato Poppers from The (almost) No Fat Cookbook. They were a bit like tater tots but more dense. Obviously, they are more healthy then tator tots. I doubled the recipe so I could put some away into the freezer.

I liked having these as a side dish. I try to stay away from potatoes because I'd rather get a "better" vegetable into the kids but I don't feel so bad about these. Along with the potato there is onion, brown rice and whole wheat bread crumbs.

I would make the potato poppers again as something easy to have around.

I have to get that recipe. With my kiddo, I'll count the potato as a veggie no question since she is such a lil picky thing. Maybe I'll puree a tiny amount of greens into them. Thanks for the post, they realy look good.
