Fried Mashed Potato Balls
- 2 medium white potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
- 1 or 2 slices insides of a bread, crumbled
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 pinch black pepper
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 egg yolk + 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup sunflower oil
Place mashed potatoes, bread, egg white, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix them with your hand. Cover and leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Pour the oil into a frying pan and heat it up. Meanwhile, take a small piece of the potato mixture and give it a ball shape, as seen in the picture. First roll it in the flour, then soak in the egg then roll it in the bread crumbs. Repeat for the remaining potato mixture and fry all them until golden brown. Place them on the paper towel to soak up the extra oil.
Serve while still warm as an appetizer.
