Jaxn’s Twice-Baked Potato Stix arrived on this planet due to a little boy in Jasper, Georgia, named Jaxn, who LOVED French fries and was getting just plain fat from eating them. So his mother came up with this delicious crunchy, twice-baked version. True love! Made with all natural ingredients, Jaxn’s Twice-Baked Potato Stix are gluten-free, delicious and the perfect salty crunch to go with a cocktail or cool summer drink. The Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper flavor was included in our MARY’s secret ingredients summer box
I prepared this appetizer to work with cocktails when our friends Margaret and Wayne came over for dinner on the 4th of July. I speared small cherry tomatoes and mini mozzarella cheese balls on these little sticks and made this tasty snack even tastier! Both versions were super delicious, although I preferred the tomatoes.
The potato stix themselves cannot punch the hole in the cheese or tomatoes. Don’t try it – they will break. Take a pair of pointed ended scissors and keep them closed and punch a hole in the cheese balls and the cocktail tomatoes. Stick the potato stick inside and voila! You have a pretty, and tasty appetizer in no time flat!
Next time, I might drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on top and throw on a few fresh basil leaves too, but it was raining really, really hard and I just couldn’t convince myself to go out in it to the garden to get some. Even if you have some leftover mini meatballs hanging about, they would be great stuck with a Jaxn’s stix! Go crazy and have fun!
