Garlic Parmesan Potato Balls
These potato balls are so good, loaded with mashed potatoes and cheese. This recipe makes 15 mashed potato balls. (Croquettes) You can use them as appetizers by inserting a tooth pic in each one. You can make a large batch for a big crowd, or this smaller one for 2 or 3. It's so easy you can use your own left over mashed potatoes or the recipe provided for them. Except the time to refrigerate the mashed potatoes this recipe is quite fast, and you can make a lot at one time. Just double the recipe or even tipple it for a large party or crowd.

Add in eggs and mix until well blended.
Stove top Directions for boiling potatoes.
Place bread crumbs in a bowl, add shredded parmesan cheese salt and pepper and mix well. I used a cookie scoop to make the same size balls. Drop one at a time into the bread crumbs, form balls, and deep fry until crispy and golden brown.
For the Sour cream I used 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 TBSP grated parmesan cheese. Salt and Pepper to taste. I also used 1 tsp garlic parmesan seasoning. This can easily be doubled or tripled
This will make 15 balls total
