Mashed Potato Bombs

This is a total comfort food recipe! They are perfectly crisp on the outside and soft and gooey and full of flavor on the inside. Here’s how you make them:

  • 3-1/2 C Mashed potatoes (cold and leftover is better)
  • Approximately 3/4 C All Purpose Flour
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder to your liking
  • 1 Egg
  • Panko Crumbs
  • For the filling: Cheddar Cheese, Green Onion, Bacon and Sour Cream
  • Canola or Vegetable Oil for frying

Start with cold mashed potatoes.

Add flour a little at a time and stir in until potatoes are stiff enough to roll into balls without being sticky.

Roll potatoes into about a half cup balls. Form a hole in the center.

Have your filling ingredients ready.

Place about a teaspoon of each ingredient into the center.

Close up the potatoes and make a ball, sealing the filling inside.

Brush with egg wash and roll in Panko crumbs.

Have oil hot and ready. I use a fry daddy.

Carefully drop potato ball into fryer.

Drain on paper towel.

Serve immediately. These are so filling and go great plain or with a side of ranch!
