Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In a skillet over high heat, cook Bacon (8 oz) for about 6-8 minutes or until crisp. Drain grease and set aside.
step 2
In a bowl, add the Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes (2 lb). Then add Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese (1 cup), Ground Nutmeg (1 tsp), Eggs (2), bacon, Salt (to taste), and Ground Black Pepper (to taste). Combine until well incorporated.
step 3
In a sheet pan, using a small ice cream scoop, scoop the potato mixture onto the sheet pan and chill in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
step 4
In separate mixing bowls, add All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Eggs (2), and Panko Breadcrumbs (1 1/2 cups) in each bowl. Using your hands to roll a ball. Then dredge in flour, eggs, and panko. Repeat this process on the remaining potato balls and place them in a sheet pan.
step 5
In a deep frying pan over medium-high heat, heat 3 cups of vegetable oil to 160 degrees F (71 degrees C).
step 6
Once hot, add potato balls into the hot oil in batches (about 4-5 pieces each time). Make sure to leave enough space so they don’t touch each other. Cook for about 1-2 minutes on all sides or until golden brown. Place potato balls on a sheet pan lined with paper towels. Let drain. Repeat this process with the remaining potato balls.
step 7
Place on a serving plate and garnish with Fresh Parsley (to taste) and enjoy immediately.
