Steps (4)

  • 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 New Fav I recently bought an air fryer, and so am revisiting some old unhealthy fried favorites. These are perfect! Make sure you use on brand Panko, otherwise it can get mushy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crispy Mashed Potato Balls are Delishious I tried this recipe and I baked them instead of frying. They were so good that they didn't even make it to the table. Everybody was snitching them in the kitchen.
