Potato Cheese Balls

Simple Starter you love to take before your dinner starts or an additional snack with rice or meal. Very simple ingredients i have used, normally available at your home. Me and my family just love it. The best part is when mashed Potato flavor goes with the soft cheese inside with a crunchy and crispy crust outside. You can better present it with some Garlic Sauce or any red or green chilli chutnee if you want to have some spicy flavour. I will later on share some Chutnee Recipes with you people. But for now i will go by sharing my recipe..

POTATO CHEESE BALLS
You will need:
4 medium sized boiled Potatoes
1/4 tbsp red crushed pepper
1/4 tbsp black pepper
1/2 tbsp salt
1 tsp hot sauce
Bar of Cheddar cheese (make it into small blocks)
1 egg and
Bread crumbs for coating
Oil for frying
Steps to follow
Mash boiled Potatoes, add spices in it with Sauce. You can adjust your spices according to your taste, what i have adjusted its medium spicy. Make it shape with round balls with chedder cheese inside. Never use mozzarella cheese if there is written cheddar cheese. chedder cheese gives a smoothy flowy texture while mozzarella always gives a sticky mixture like of Pizza's topping.

First coat it with the beaten egg

Then second coating goes with the Bread Crumbs,

if you like more crunch repeat this process twice. Otherwise i found it good with only single coating of egg + bread crumbs. deep fry balls in a pan on medium flame

After frying... Yummy Ready.. enjoy !!!

Thank you for your recipe. Great way of using up leftovers.
You just had to put a pic in.. Now I'm all hungry. I've all the ingredients but the bread crumbs. Easily rectified. Making some now.

Can they be made ahead of time, then frozen for later use?

Knowing who and what I live with this is going to one of those recipes that I'll try. They will love. And I'll never get one again.Thanks?

Welcome to DC.

Out of curiosity the OP didn't specify what kind of cheddar cheese was used.

Does the cheese look to you as it does on my monitor like white mild cheddar cheese?

Will they hold up if baked? I don't own a deep fryer. Don't like to fry in a sauce pan. These sound soooo good.

Do you have a Dutch oven? I've used that for deep-frying, with just a couple inches of oil.

This looks really good and seems fairly simple to make! Lately I have been on a frying binge, so this recipe seems perfect for me. I'll have to split the recipe in half and see if it works equally as well when baked compared to frying. Thanks for sharing!

I have decided to make these Cheesy Potato Balls and I must say they came out to be absolutely delightful! Actually, I ended up making them twice because I was told that they needed something a little bit extra. What was the answer to this problem: Bacon. I decided to add bacon bits and let me tell you it added another dimension to them!

To answer your question I decided to both fry and bake the Cheesy Potato Balls with Bacon Bits. I found that frying them provided a more enjoyable flavor. It gave the potato balls a crispy outside while also melting the cheese fully on the inside. In contrast, baking the potato balls provided a non-crispy, almost soft, outside and the cheese was not fully melted on the inside. Furthermore, I fried the potato balls for only four and a half minutes whereas baking them took twelve minutes.

Check out the picture below and judge for yourself!
