Culinary Confessional

Just a girl in the world...of culinary adventures! I'm beginning culinary academy in the fall, but will be doing a LOT of work before then to get myself ready for this. _____________________

This is a blog of my journey to change my life.
Loaded Mashed Potato Bites
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes, room temperature
2 tbsp of flour
2/3 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
3 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/3 cup scallions, chopped
1 egg
1-1/2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
Vegetable oil for frying
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a deep pot to 365-deg.
Combine the potatoes and flour in a mixing bowl and stir well.  Add the cheese, bacon, and scallions and stir to combine.  
Using your hands, roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into quarter-sized balls.
Beat the egg in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Place the breadcrumbs in a separate bowl.  Dredge each potato bite first through the egg, then roll through the breadcrumbs until well coated.
Working in batches, fry the potato bites in the oil for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
Remove with slotted spoon and place on paper towels to blot off any excess oil.  Repeat with the remaining potato bites, then serve.
