Last week I made my daughter Samantha one of her favorites, meatloaf and mashed potatoes and for some reason I always make too many of the mashed potatoes. Instead of doing the usual re-bake of the mashed potatoes, I deep fried them....oh so good!
Left over mashed
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of diced scallions
1 cup of bread crumbs
1 cup of canola oil
1 cup of creamy horseradish sauce
Combine the Parmesan cheese and scallions with the mashed potatoes. Heat the oil in large fry pan. You can make balls by using a small ice cream scoop or just using a spoon and making little balls in the palm of your hand. Dip the balls into the bread crumbs and place in oil. Fry as you would anything. Rolling around to get all sides a gold brown color. Remove to a paper towel to drain excess oil and serve with the horseradish sauce. You can also serve with tomato sauce for the people who like less spicy.
