Loaded Potato Bites

Place back on baking sheet and sprinkle with remaining shredded cheddar cheese. Bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes, until potatoes are warmed through and cheese has melted. Garnish each potato bite with a small dollop of remaining sour cream, a sprinkling of bacon bits, and chives…

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 2/3 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 strips bacon
  • 1/3 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ¼ – 1 ½ cups Italian bread crumbs
  • Oil for frying
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Ranch or Honey Mustard for dipping

Directions:

  1. Take potatoes out of the fridge and let sit for a few minutes to take the chill off a bit.
  2. Meanwhile shred the cheese, chop scallions, and cook bacon then dice finely.
  3. Add potatoes and flour to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine well, then add cheese, bacon, and scallions.
  4. Take about a heaping tablespoon of mixture and roll with hands into a small ball. It if doesn’t hold its shape, add a little more flour to make the potatoes sturdy.
  5. Repeat until done.
  6. Heat oil in a medium saucepan – or use your fryer – over medium/medium-high heat to about 350-375 degrees.
  7. Whisk egg into a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Place bread crumbs in an additional bowl.
  8. Dip each ball in egg and then roll in bread crumbs until fully coated. Set aside on a sheet pan.
  9. Test oil with one ball. The oil should bubble when potato is in oil and ball should take about 1-2 minutes to brown and cook through.
  10. It takes longer the oil needs to be hotter, if it browned too quickly on the outside and the inside is still cold, the temperature needs to be lower.)
  11. Once the oil is ready, add potato balls in small batches and fry for 1-2 minutes – it will depend on size.
  12. Remove with slotted spoon and place on the paper-lined plate to allow excess oil to drain off. Repeat until done.
  13. Allow to cool for a minute or two and serve with dipping sauce

TIP: Alternatively Bake in the oven until golden brown at 350-375 degrees for a lower fat option
