Description:

A fun use for leftover mashed potatoes! You don't have to use Velveeta--just try to use a cheese that melts quickly. Cheddar is tasty, but won't end up very melted.

Directions:

  1. Add the green onions and chives to the mashed potatoes, adding a little water to refresh them as you go.
  2. Scoop out about a golf-ball size amount of potato mix and insert a cheese cube in the middle, carefully forming a seamless ball around it. Repeat with remaining potato mix.
  3. Freeze mashed potato balls for 1 hour.
  4. When ready to fry, heat 2" of vegetable oil in a pot to 350 degrees.
  5. Roll each ball in flour, then coat in egg, then cover well with panko/bread crumbs.
  6. Carefully drop ball into hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat until all balls are fried.
  7. Serve with gravy, ketchup, ranch dressing, or any sauce you'd like to try!
