Crispy Potato Bites



  • 2 C. leftover mashed potatoes
  • 3 T. flour
  • 1 T. chives
  • 2 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 C. finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C. Italian bread crumbs
  • oil for frying


How to Make It

  • Bring the potatoes to room temperature or heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Combine the flour into the potatoes. Add in the chives, crumbled bacon and cheese, mix well. Beat the egg in a small bowl. Place the bread crumbs in a small bowl. Heat oil in a deep fryer or about 2" deep in a heavy skillet to 375 degrees. Take a spoonful of the potatoes and roll into a ball with your hands (mine were about golf ball size) then dip in the egg and the roll in the bread crumbs. Place on a plate and repeat with remaining potatoes. Gently drop into the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Makes approx. 14 balls
