Easy Left Over Cheese and Potato Bites

Serves 4-6        Cooking Time 25mins         Skill Level – Easy!

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 20 cheese cubes (about half inch or desired size)
  • 2 onions
  • 2 cups left over mash potato
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (optional)
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon garlic granules
  • Oil for frying

Let's get cooking:

  1. Start by cooking up some bacon over medium heat until crisp and put to one side to cool down ready for chopping.
  2. Grab a bowl and thrown in the bacon, mashed potatoes and green onions and mix them together.
  3. To get an even size of the mixture use a teaspoon (unless of course you want to free hand!), next a cube of Westminster cheddar and place it in the centre.
  4. Surround the cheddar in the mixture and create into a ball, dip into a mixture of egg and milk and smother in breadcrumbs. Do this twice for extra crunchiness.
  5. Use a pan to heat your oil to approximately 350F, carefully place the balls into the oil and fry until golden and irresistible!
  6. After about 2 minutes, remove them from the oil and place onto paper towel to drain any excess oil and serve immediately.
