Pretzel Mashed Potato Bites
By Paula Deen
- 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.
