Potato Cheese Balls

potato balls

Potato cheese balls are a great way to use up leftovers after the holidays. If you don’t have leftovers, you can use now potatoes. Either was they are delicious.

Any type of potato can be used. I prefer white but Yukon Jack or russets can be use. Simply get the potato of your choice.

We use a combination of mozzarella and sharp cheddar for the cheese, but you can use your favourite cheese. Tex Mex cheese works well too.

In this recipe a simple combination of mayo, salt, and pepper is used but other spices can used as well. In example, some garlic and onion powder might be nice.

If you don’t have an ice cream scoop, you can use a spoon or just your hands. You can make the balls any size you like.

The oil should be about 350 degrees F or 177 C. I never use a thermometer, I just eye ball it over medium high heat. It seems to work every time. They take only a few minutes to fry.
