If your tot is anything like my little guy, fiercely independent and loves to eat, then these toddler bites will be perfect for you both!

I find myself always steaming veggies for him, then he doesn’t finish some of it, so today I took that extra steamed veggies, made a quick small batch of mashed potatoes (not too runny, a bit drier is better) and mashed them all together, and put into the fridge to chill while I got my little guy cleaned up and ready for his next adventure.

A bit later, I came back to my concoction and thinly diced up some ham and cheese, added that to the batch and rolled out small toddler sized balls.  I rolled these little guys in some bread crumbs and stuck it into the toaster oven for 15 mins at 350°.

I’m not kidding you, he ate them all!!!  And of course, all by himself.  Score!!!  I’ll def be making these again and thought I’d share.  🙂

You could also dip the potato balls into a scrambled egg before rolling into bread crumbs, but my little guy might have an egg allergy so I shied away from that option.

Enjoy!
