Week 17 Recipe: Potato Balls

From time to time we all end up with leftovers and if you are like me you probably don't want to eat the same old reheated leftover.  This is a yummy way to "transform" your leftover mashed potatoes.

So yummy I didn't get a picture of them plated!

1 cup cold mashed potatoes
1T sour cream
2T shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Heat your oven to 350 degrees
In a bowl combine potatoes, sour cream, cheese and salt and pepper
Using a  tablespoon measure scoop the potato mixture and form into a ball
Place the panko crumbs in a shallow container and roll the balls in the crumbs until coated

Place your potato balls on a foil lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until the potatoes are golden brown.  Put a little bit of space between your potato balls because they do spread a bit (based on how thick your mashed potatoes are to begin with).

Serve with additional sour cream or ketchup.  Enjoy!
