- 1Boil potatoes in salted water until very soft, about 20 minutes.
- 2Drain off water and mash.
- 3Cool in fridge for about 10 minutes, or until they are cool enough to handle.
- 4Add salt, pepper and half of the parmesan cheese, mixing until just combined.
- 5Roll mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter.
- 6Set on wax paper or a cookie sheet.
- 7Separate yolks from 3 eggs.
- 8Set yolks into a separate bowl, and whisk.
- 9In another bowl combine bread crumbs with the remaining parmesan cheese.
- 10Dip potato balls into the egg yolk, rolling to coat, then roll in bread crumb mixture. This works best if you devote one hand to the wet rolling, and the other hand to the dry crumbs.
- 11Continue until all potatoes balls are coated with egg and crumbs.
- 12Pour the oil into a small heavy bottomed pot and heat over medium heat until oil begins to ripple and reaches about 300 degrees.
- 13Cook potato balls, a few at a time, removing them to a paper towel when they’re golden brown.
- 14As oil continues to heat, you will need to gradually turn heat down to prevent potato balls from cooking too rapidly.
- 15Makes about 30 balls.
