Cheesy Potato Bombs Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Cup flour
  • ½ Cup shredded cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Give leftover mashed potatoes a new lease on life with this cheesy potato bombs recipe.

Start by making your favorite mashed potato recipe. After your mashed taters are ready, then preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the mashed potatoes, butter, salt, and pepper to a bowl and mix well.

Mix the ingredients well and start rolling out your potato balls.

Then you will add the egg and flour. Mix everything together until you have a dough. If it’s too sticky add 2 more Tablespoons of flour. After the dough forms, mix in the shredded cheese.

Use your hands to form small balls of cheesy potato dough. (This could be a task to delegate to your children!) Place the potato balls in a baking tray and drizzle some olive oil.

Pop them into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Scrumptious baked cheesy potato bombs are ready to be eaten as a savory side dish or for a party appetizer. This recipe is easy to make!

Once they are done, serve them with some cool ranch or bleu cheese dressing.

Want to change things up a bit? You can also fry the potato bombs instead of baking them. To make super powerful cheesy potato bombs, stuff them with shredded cheese! The best part? You can make them ahead and freeze them until you are ready to bake them. So if you like to batch cook or make prep ahead freezer meals, go ahead and double them. Be sure to flash freeze them on a cookie sheet so they don’t become one big frozen lump.
