Cheese Stuffed Potato Balls

Cheese Stuffed Potato Balls are a favorite with kids - crispy on the outside and full of melted, gooey cheese on the inside.


Step 1

Place whole potatoes in a medium-sized pot and fill with water. Bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are soft inside when you insert a knife, about 15-20 minutes.

Step 2

Drain and let cool. Peel potatoes and grate.

Step 3

In a large bowl combine 3 cups of grated or mashed potatoes, bacon pieces, spinach, eggs, black pepper, salt, and garlic powder.

Step 4

Using a small ice cream scoop place one scoop of mashed potato mixture into your hand, top with one cheese cube and then add another scoop of potato mixture on top.

Step 5

Form a ball and roll in panko bread crumbs.

Step 6

Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Deep fry until golden brown and crispy on the outside.

Step 7

Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
