Ingridiens for Potato Cheese Balls

Steps to make Potato Cheese Balls

1

Prepare potatoes

Soak 3 large and peeled potatoes in a bowl of cold water to remove starch then chop into big chunks.

2

Boil potatoes

20

In a large pot of salted water, boil the potato chunks until softened.

3

Prepare mozzarella

2

Drain 3.5 ounces of ½-inch mozzarella cubes on a paper towel.

4

Prepare breading

2

In 3 separate bowls, prepare the egg by whisking 3 eggs together in 1 bowl. Then, another bowl with ½ cup of flour and a third bowl with 2 cups of breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon of paprika and some salt and pepper combined.

5

Mash potatoes

3

Drain the boiled potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl. Use a potato ricer or masher and mash the potatoes.

6

Add Parmesan

2

Add ½ cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper then mash to combine well.

7

Prepare potato balls

3

Use a tablespoon of the mixture to prepare about 25 potato and cheese balls about ½ ounce in weight.

8

Add mozzarella

3

Gently make a small hole in the center of each ball and place a mozzarella cube inside each one.

9

Bread balls

5

To bread the balls, dip each one into the flour bowl, then the beaten eggs and the breadcrumb mix to generously coat. Then dip once again into beaten eggs and finally into breadcrumbs mix. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment paper.

10

Refrigerate

5

Refrigerate for a few minutes until the oil is hot.

11

Heat oil

3

In a large pot over medium heat, heat vegetable oil until it reaches 350 °F.

12

Deep fry balls

20

Working in batches, deep fry the potato balls for about 4 minutes until golden brown, taking care not to over fry and the mozzarella cheese doesn’t ooze out. Drain on paper towels.

13

Serve

Season with salt and pepper and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
