Pretzel Mashed Potato Bites

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 tablespoon for sauce brown mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon horseradish
  • for frying peanut oil
  • 4 cups left over mashed potatoes
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup crushed pretzels


For the sauce: Place dipping sauce ingredients into a small bowl and mix well. Serve with pretzel mashed potato bites.

For the potato bites: In a Dutch oven or deep fryer, pour the oil to a depth of 5 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F.

Combine the potatoes with the egg. Mix in the flour and mustard. Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon, form into balls, and roll in the crushed pretzels. Deep fry until the bites float to the top and are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with the mustard dipping sauce.

Cook’s Note: These can also be breaded with crushed potato chips.
