Mashed Potato Bombs

 

Recipe:

1 package Old Home Foods prepared Mashed Potatoes

1 egg

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup green onions, or chives, chopped

1 cup panko crumbs (seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper)

6 oz block cheddar cheese, cut in 1-in cubes

vegetable oil for frying

Directions:

In a large bowl combined potatoes, flour, mozzarella cheese, and green onions. Mix until everything is combined.

With a large ice cream scoop, take a scoop of the potato mixture and push in a cube of cheddar cheese, cover the cheese with the mashed potatoes. Roll around in panko crumbs.

Drop in vegetable oil set at 350 degrees F. Fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Serve immediately.

*Tip: Make sure oil is not too hot, otherwise the outside will brown fast and the cheese will not melt inside. If this happens, place in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes and the cheese will melt!

Yields: 10-12
