A fun alternative to plain mashed potatoes. I chilled the mashed potato mixture for about 90 minutes, rolled into the ball and then refrigerated them for about an hour before coating them. Went great with the meatloaf I made.

A little time consuming and chilled potatoes probably work better. Different twist of mashed potatoes.

I used gruyer cheese and panko crumbs instead as that is what I had. A little time consuming but good. I also made a warm honey mustard dip for them. Definitely a new idea and a great finger food for kids.

I thought this was okay but somewhat dry. However, it may have been my fault trying to hold them over as I was serving in courses.

But you have to let the potatoes cool or chill them for about an hour so you can mold them into the balls. It doesn't work if you do it right after you mash them. it gets very messy...
