Game food porn, Part II

I fixed two new game food dishes yesterday, so I made sure to capture for posterity the process of making those two dishes. Whole bunch of steps involved, so I decided to break each one out from the main game food post. First up, we had Cheese Potato bites. You will start with about 2 pounds of potatoes. The recipe recommends using bakers. Those are really gummy when boiled, so keep that in mind. It becomes relevant later. Anyway, peel about 2 pounds of bakers, cut them into chunks and boil them:


Once they're done, mash them until smooth:


Scramble one egg:


And thinly slice two green onions:


Mix both of them into the mashed bakers.

Now cut some Velveeta into cubes so you have about a dozen and a half cubes:


Yes, that Velveeta. Your grandparents might be dead (or your great-grandparents, depending upon how old you are), but Velveeta is not:


Take some Shake-N-Bake Extra Crispy, and pour it into a pie pan:


Using a large spoon (I told you this stuff is gummy -- in this photo, I had not yet learned to use the spoon) and make a ball of the potato mix -- about two tablespoons per ball. Insert a cube of Velveeta into the center and close the potato mix around the cheese, or whatever the hell Velveeta is:


Roll that sucker in the pie pan of Shake-N-Bake until coated, and place the balls on a greased pan:


Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes, and enjoy. You can dip them in stuff like salsa or catsup, if you like. Really good.
