Baked Potato Marbles

Baked Potato Marbles

My teens love these baked potatoes. These are popular among their packed lunch must-haves. These are filling for teens who constantly feel hungry.

Baked Potato Marbles are (sort of) easy to prepare. Here is how I do it:

  1. Soak the potatoes in water with salt for a few minutes.
  2. I brush each small potato with a fruit brush to ensure that all dirt are removed because I don’t remove the skin. You can opt to peel if this is easier for your peace of mind.
  3. Cut the potatoes in halves or quarters.
  4. Put in a shallow dish and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle garlic powder. How much you will add will depend on how much flavor you like for the potatoes.
  6. Add a little salt and Italian seasoning.
  7. Make sure that each potato piece has been well coated with oil and spices.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30-40minutes.
  9. Best when served warm.

Other options:

You can add the following to make the recipe taste better: cubed carrots, caulifower flowers, broccoli pieces, sliced mushroom, butter instead of olive oil, other spices like paprika, and fried bacon bits.

Homemade Snacks

  Homemade snacks are the best for us because we put extra effort in prepping the food and we know what ingredients were used.
