ingredients

  • 3 large russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 3 12 ounces Portuguese chourico, skin removed and finely diced
  • sea salt and white pepper, to taste
  • 1 34 ounces fine breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • vegetable oil, for frying

directions

  • Set a large saucepan almost filled with water to a boil. Season with salt then add the whole potatoes, and cook until tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes and set aside until cooled. Peel off the skins and mash the flesh with a fork.
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Stir in the diced onions and cook until softened, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the chourico and continue cooking until the onions are caramelized, 7 to 10 minutes longer.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, the sautéed chourico and onions. Stir in the breadcrumbs and egg.
  • Shape the mixture into walnut-sized balls and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Fill a large pan one third full with vegetable oil and heat to 355F (180C). Fry the balls in small batches until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
