  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray.
  2. Boil Potatoes: In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add the cubed potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and let them cool slightly.
  3. Mash Potatoes: Mash the potatoes in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
  4. Mix Ingredients: Add shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped green onions, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, paprika, and dried oregano to the mashed potatoes. Mix well to combine.
  5. Shape Potato Balls: Scoop about 1-2 tablespoons of the potato mixture and shape it into a ball. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
  6. Prepare for Coating: Place the flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs in three separate shallow bowls.
  7. Coat Potato Balls: Roll each potato ball in the flour, then dip it in the beaten eggs, and finally coat it with breadcrumbs. Place the coated balls on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake: Drizzle the potato balls with olive oil or lightly spray them with cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Serve: Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your delicious baked potato balls with your favorite dipping sauce!

Tips:

  • For extra flavor, you can add cooked and crumbled bacon to the potato mixture.
  • Experiment with different cheeses or herbs to customize the taste.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the mixture.
