Cheesy Loaded Potato Bombs

These Cheesy Loaded Potato Bombs are a great way to use up leftover and make a perfect game day snack!
Ingredients for Cheesy loaded potato bombs
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 20½ inch cubes cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup plain dried bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • oil for frying
  • ranch dressing for dipping
Instructions for Cheesy loaded potato bombs
  1. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove and allow to cool. Chop.
  2. In a bowl combine together bacon, mashed potatoes and green onions. Mix well.
  3. Make an assembly line. Whisk together milk and egg in one bowl. In another bowl combine bread crumbs, garlic and salt.
  4. Make the potato balls: scoop up a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture, place a piece of cheddar in the center and press the mashed potatoes around it to enclose the cheese in the potatoes. Roll into a ball. Dip balls potatoes in egg/milk mixture, then into bread crumbs, then back into egg/milk and then back into bread crumbs to double coat. Repeat with remaining ingredients until 20 potato bombs are made.
  5. Heat ½ inch of oil in a pot or skillet over medium high heat. Once it reaches 350 degrees, carefully add potato bombs and fry until golden, about 2 minutes, turning occasionally. You may need to do this in batches so you don’t overcrowd the pan.
  6. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
