Cheese and Potato Balls Recipe

cheese and potato balls

Ingredients for Cheese and Potato Balls:

  • 1 lb (450 g) cooked potatoes
  • 4 oz mature cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 or 2  free-range eggs, beaten
  • 2 – 3 oz breadcrumbs

Method for Cheese and Potato Balls:

  1. Mash the potatoes and beat until smooth.
  2. If they are still warm, scoop into a dish and chill in the fridge.
  3. Add the grated cheese, mustard and salt and pepper and enough beaten egg to make a stiff mixture.
  4. Turn onto a floured board and shape into balls.
  5. Brush the balls with more beaten egg and coat with breadcrumbs.
  6. Fry in deep hot fat until golden brown.
  7. Drain carefully onto crumpled kitchen roll.

It may be better to do in batches. If so, once all the potato balls are fried, transfer the balls onto a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for five minutes at 400˚F (200˚C).

 A great way of using up any leftover mashed potatoes and can be eaten as a starter, part of a meal, or just as a snack.
