What Can I Make with Leftover Mashed Potato?
We all have those days when we have leftover mashed potato, that’s when you make mashed potato balls.
It’s the easiest way to turn the leftover into a new dish that everyone would go crazy for.
The best thing about mashed potato balls is that you can be creative by adding other ingredients to jazz up the taste.
How to Make Mashed Potato Balls
To make mashed potato balls, first add a few ingredients to the leftover mashed potatoes. I love the combination of bacon bits, cheddar cheese and chopped parsley.
Mix the leftover mashed potato with all the ingredients together and then shape them into bite-sized balls. You can use your hands to shape the balls.
Next, roll them with breadcrumbs. The final step is deep-frying the mashed potato balls until they turn golden brown.
Tips for Crispy Mashed Potato Balls
Make sure you chill the leftover mashed potatoes – the mashed potato should be chilled in the fridge before you start working on them.
Use regular breadcrumbs for better results and make sure you don’t over fry the mashed potato balls. As soon as they turn brown, scoop them out from the oil.
