- 4 cups leftover mashed potatoes
- 3 oz. cream cheese softened
- 2 T. chives chopped
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 t. garlic powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/4 t. ground black pepper
- 1 c. bread crumbs
- 1 c. flour
- vegetable oil for frying
Start heating a large, deep pot filled halfway with oil over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees.
While the oil is heating, mix together the mashed potatoes, cream cheese, chives, one egg, parmesan cheese, the garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Roll into balls about the size of a golf ball and set on a board.
In three bowls set out the bread crumbs, flour and the other 2 eggs, beaten with a tablespoon of water.
Dip each mashed potato ball into the flour first, shaking off the excess, then into the beaten egg, letting the excess drip off, and then last into the bread crumbs.
Once your oil reaches about 350 degrees, start frying the balls in batches, not overcrowding the pot as you fry.
Fry for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and then remove to a paper towel lined board or plate.
While still warm, top with extra parmesan cheese.
You can keep these in the oven on low (250º) for about 30 minutes to an hour if you want to make them ahead of time.
