French Fried Potato Balls

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 5 tablespoons milk


In a large mixing bowl, mix ingredients in order given. Drop from a tablespoon into deep fryer at 360º. When brown, drain on brown paper. Serve hot.

Notes from The Paula Deen Test Kitchen: A light and fluffy potato ball. We sprinkled with Paula Deen’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.
