Directions to make Cheesy Potato Bombs:

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.

Want to change things up a bit?

You can also fry the potato bombs instead of baking them.

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.
