Snowball Potatoes

Recipe by SusieQusie
READY IN: 50mins


  • 4
    medium russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1
    tablespoon salt
  • 2
    ounces oaxaca cheese, cubed (or any other soft white cheese)
  • 1
    cup seasoned bread crumbs


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Put potatoes in a large pot and fill with water until potatoes are just covered.
  • Add the 1 tablespoon salt. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are very soft, about 20 minutes.
  • Press potatoes through a potato ricer or pulse in a bowl with an immersion hand blender until they are mashed. Let sit for a few minutes until just cool enough to handle.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, cut the white cheese in 1/2-inch cubes.
  • Cover a baking sheet with foil wrap and coat foil with vegetable spray or rub with oil.
  • Put bread crumbs into a small bowl.
  • While mashed potatoes are still warm, form into 2-inch balls and insert 1 cheese cube in center, then roll into bread crumbs and place on cookie sheet. (Wash hands and dry after every third ball so the potatoes will form evenly.).
  • Place snowballs on prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
