Turkey mashed potato bites – Transform your ordinary day to an extraordinary one by having this tasty snack

 

Ingredients

  • 3 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup finely chopped leftover turkey
  • 1/3 cup chopped scallions
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Leftover cranberry sauce or gravy, for serving
  • 3 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • ¼ tea spoon Salt
  • ¼ tea spoon ground white pepper
  • ½ pinch nutmeg powder

 

Preparation

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, turkey, scallions, cheese and eggs until well combined. Place the breadcrumbs in a separate large bowl.

Using a small ice cream scoop or spoon, scoop out about 3 tablespoons of the mashed potato mixture and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in the breadcrumbs, shaking off any excess. Repeat the scooping, rolling and breading process with the remaining mashed potato mixture.

Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Add the vegetable oil to a large heavy-bottomed stockpot and attach the deep-fry thermometer to the side. Heat the oil until it reaches 360°F. Carefully add a few of the mashed potato balls to the oil and cook them, turning occasionally, until they’re golden brown. Using a slotted spoon or colander, transfer the mashed potato bites to the paper towel-lined plate and immediately season them with salt. Add the remaining mashed potato balls to the oil, returning the oil to 360°F between each batch.

Serve the mashed potato bites with leftover cranberry sauce or gravy for dipping.
