A twist on Mashed Potatoes

Top Review by Nizzy28

My friend was telling me about these "potato balls" that he makes and I hopped onto the Zaar to see if I could find a recipe similar to what he was describing. This is very similar to what he was explaining. I had to leave the cheese out because I did not have any and I dipped the balls in the eggs then flour and finally panko bread crumbs. I did not freeze the balls, I just let the potatoes cool completely before shaping them into balls. I also added a 1/4 cup chopped onions and fried them up. Very delicious :)
