Although Myra's diet is very limited due to her FPIES, we are able to make her a variety of foods using substitutions with her safe foods. These potato bites are great finger foods, very similar to tater tots. As Myra gains more safe foods, we can add them to this recipe (herbs, spinach, etc.) to change the flavor. This basic recipe is using only potato, coconut, and salt.
First, you'll need to make mashed potatoes. I have a recipe (click here) using only potatoes, coconut, and salt.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (my favorite FPIES cooking tip-non stick with no oils or sprays!). Put the mashed potatoes in little balls, about the size of a gum drop, onto the lined cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes (I usually check at 20 minutes then in 5 minute increments) until they have browned and the outside is crispy. Let cool and enjoy! Myra loves these since she has recently given up being spoon fed and insists on feeding herself. They're great with any other safes added into the mashed potatoes (spinach, meats, even fruits! FPIES kiddos, or any kiddos, don't seem to mind "weird" food combinations).
