More About This Recipe
Cheesy, bacony, and deep fried, these loaded cheesy mashed potato balls are super easy and so incredibly good, you'll want to eat the entire batch. We wouldn't blame you if you did.
Start with either leftover mashed potatoes, or a pouch of Betty Crocker™ mashed potatoes, and add cheese, bacon, and chives. Give them a quick roll in Panko breadcrumbs then set them to rest for a few minutes. You want them nice and room temperature before hitting the hot oil. Then just fry them to a golden crisp.
Garnish with a few extra chives and enjoy the golden brown crispy greatness and cheesy centers.
