French Fried Potato Balls

By Any Idiot Can Cook With Simple Southern Recipes

French Fried Potato Balls
Ingredients:
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
5 tablespoons milk
Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, mix ingredients in order given. Drop from a tablespoon into deep fryer at 360ºF. When brown, drain on brown paper. Serve hot.

Notes from The Paula Deen Test Kitchen: A light and fluffy potato ball. We sprinkled with The Lady and Son’s House Seasoning as soon as they came out of the hot oil and they were delicious. We also tried some right out of the hot oil with maple syrup and they were also delicious. Must be eaten hot/warm.

Servings: 4
