Crispy on the outside, these golden Parmesan and Garlic Potato Bites are a delicious update to traditional mashed potatoes.


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • Canola oil for frying

Prep Time: 45min | Cook Time: 15min

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, shallots, garlic cloves, egg, and Italian parsley. Shape into 1 inch balls.
  2. Refrigerate the potato balls for 30 minutes.
  3. Next, roll the potato balls in the parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Preheat a skillet with about 2 inches of oil on moderate heat.
  4. Fry potato balls on all sides, a few at a time, for 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.


30 Minutes of Refrigeration time needed, included in prep time.
