  • Step 1
    Mash together the potatoes, butter, 1 tablespoon of dressing mix, flour and eggs. Once smooth, mix in shredded cheddar.
  • Step 2
    Mix together the bread crumbs with the tablespoon of ranch dressing mix you reserved earlier.
  • Step 3
    Take small dollops of the potatoes (a tablespoon or a little less), and roll them into balls. Drop a few balls at a time into the crumb mix. Roll around to cover completely. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • Step 4
    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Carefully place balls into hot oil and flip until all sides are golden and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.

    Tip: Mashed Potato Balls can also be baked. Simply place on parchment lined baking sheets, spray with cooking oil, and bake for 9-10 minutes in 400 F until golden and crispy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rave reviews from family Want to eat mashed potatoes with your hands? This is a super fun dish, and the kids loved them! I did not have bread crumbs. So, I substituted crushed cheese puffs! Yum!!!
