Fried Potato Balls Recipe

 

 

This is a lot easier to make than I had thought.  Everyone always enjoys these so much.  I usually serve them with either ranch dressing or sweet and sour sauce for dipping.

 

What You Will Need:

–   2 cups of mashed potatoes

–   1 beaten egg

–   3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

–   1/2 cup of chopped green onions

–   1/4 cup of bacon bits

–   1/2 cup of dry bread crumbs

–   oil for frying

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Place mashed potatoes in a large bowl and let sit at room temperate for about 30 minutes.

2.   Now stir in the egg, cheese, onions and bacon bits.  Shape into 1-inch balls and then roll in bread crumbs.

3.   In a skillet, heat up the oil.  Fry potato balls for 2-3 minutes or until they become golden brown.

4.   Place on paper towel to absorb excess oil and enjoy!
