Fried Mashed Potato Balls

Round 3 of the Crazy Cooking Challenge
Mashed Potatoes

While searching around for the best bloggy
Mashed Potato recipe we knew we wanted
a recipe for left-overs.

had the perfect recipe.
And with a name like Blissfully Delicious,
 can you make something bad?
We think not!

Our hot creamy mashed potatoes are full of, garlic, sour cream, butter, and seasoning.
But after sitting in the fridge they loose some of their yumm factor.

 We did make a few additions to Blissfully Delicious' recipe by adding crumbled bacon and shredded cheddar cheese.

** Little BIG tip**
Make extra because this is one recipe that you will want
3 cups stiff seasoned mashed potatoes (preferably cold)
2 eggs
1/2 cup of sliced green onions
1/2 cup bacon
1 cup cheddar cheese
1-1/2 cups of panko
Oil for frying


1.  Let cold mashed potatoes stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

2.  Stir in the eggs, onions, cheese and bacon.

Mix well

3.  Shape into 1" balls using an ice cream scoop.

4.  Roll balls in panco.
(to make clean up eaiser place foil under work area)

5.  Heat oil in Fry Daddy to 375 degrees
(or shallow frying pan).
Fry potato balls in small batches until golden brown,
about 2-3 minutes. 
If you need to turn make sure the crust is crispy and brown.

6.  Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

7.  Serve warm with Garlic Mayonaisse

Don't they look like Hush Puppies?


We knew at once Blissfully Delicious was a girl after our own hearts when she
quoted Virginia Woolf ~
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
