Loaded Mashed Potato Bombs Recipe
What You Need
  • 1 cup of bacon
  • 2 cups cold mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 chopped chive
  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs
  • Oil
  1. First cook your mashed potatoes and let cool down.
  2. Once cooled, mix your mashed potatoes with 1 cup bacon and 1 cup shredded cheddar. Now shape your mixture into 1 inch balls.
  3. Roll your 1 inch balls into a slightly beaten egg mixture and then add to bread crumbs. Coat on all sides.
  4. Place your finished ball on parchment paper (laid on cookie sheet) and toss in freezer for approximately 10-15 minutes to set.
  5. Now using your skillet or fryer, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees. If you are working with a skillet over the stove, medium-high heat works best.
  6. Add a few of your balls to the fryer at a time for approximately 3 minutes, turning until a nice crispy brown. Remove carefully and lay on a napkin or paper plate to soak up grease.
  7. Serve immediately with our Sour Cream and Garlic Butter Dipping sauce
