    After you freeze them how do you get them all not to melt before you can fry them......I usually get the first 2 batches into the frier before the rest turn to mush and have to be thrown away which stinks because they are so good when they work out

    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 :)

    These turned out great (once I was patient enough to let the oil get to the right temp!). I had some Idahoan Loaded Baked potatoes left over and added some shredded colby jack cheese. The outside was slightly crunchy and then gave way to the creaminess of the potatoes. Thanks for a great way to use up my leftover mashed potatoes!!
