20 BALLS

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mashed potato
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Flour
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Gravy, to serve

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. In a bowl combine the mashed potato with green onion, garlic powder, chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. In another bowl combine panko bread crumbs and oil, until oil is absorbed.
  4. Dust your hands with flour, take about a spoon of potato mixture, flatten and add a cheese cube in the center.
  5. Wrap and form into a ball. Roll in flour, dip in egg and then roll in panko mixture, pressing if necessary to stick well. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture.
  6. Place the ball into a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden and crisp. Don’t over bake or the cheese will start to seep out.
  8. Cool for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Serve with gravy.
