Cheese and potatoes were meant to be together and these cheesy potato bombs take mashed potatoes to a whole new level. They are the perfect savory side dish and work well as party food too. I mean, mashed potatoes are delicious, but they don’t generally don’t work well as an appetizer. This recipe is easy to follow and so worth it!
Cheesy Potato Bombs Recipe
3 Cups mashed potatoes
1 Tbsp butter
½ Cup flour
½ Cup shredded cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
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.
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.
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.
