DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Peel potatoes, then cut the larger ones in half and boil for 20 minutes.
  • Combine breadcrumbs with salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. Cook for no more than 2 minutes, or long enough to brown them.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, pan fry the bacon until crispy, then dry on a paper towel.
  • Mash potatoes by hand or run through a ricer.
  • Chop bacon into small pieces, then combine with shredded cheese and potatoes. Roll mixture into 15 equal-sized balls; an ice cream scoop is a good way to do this.
  • Place egg in a small container with a tablespoon of water and whisk. Place breadcrumbs in another small container. Roll each ball in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs, and place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then turn over and bake for another 10 minutes.
