“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. Who knew that 5 ingredients could pack such a punch of flavor! These little treats scream Mama Mia that's a tasty tater ball! They are crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside. They are the perfect appetizer for any occasion. The best thing about these delightful balls of yumminess is that the kids will flip over these as well as the grown-ups.”
