These mashed potato balls are insanely tasty. They are oven BAKED, but at the same time, you will be surprised how CRUNCHY they are stuffed with grated cheddar cheese, fresh onion, and spices. MY favorite side dish that I am sure you are also going to love.

boiling the potatoes:

  • 2 cups water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 medium potatoes

potato balls

  • ¼ tiny chopped onion
  • 1 tsp chopped coriander
  • 3 tbsp cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 5 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ lemon
  • tartar sauce


boiling the potatoes:

In a medium, pot add water and salt and boil 2 medium potatoes. Once they are soft and cooked, leave them to cool down.
While the potatoes are boiling, you can toast the breadcrumbs. Add the breadcrumbs in a pan and spray some olive oil on them. Then out them over medium heat and mix with a wooden spoon continuously. Once they start getting golden brown lower the heat down and still mix for another minute or two.
Then take them out of the heat and add the smoked paprika in. With this step, the breadcrumbs are finished toasting.

potato balls:

Once the potatoes are cold, peel and mash them with a potato masher, fork or with a stand mixer.
In the potatoes add, on smallest grated cheddar cheese, tiny chopped onion, coriander, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and the whisked egg. Then mix everything well together and form balls.


Roll the balls first in the flour, then dip them in the other half of the egg, and ad the end in the breadcrumbs. Repeat this process two times. Add the already crumbed balls, in egg, and then in the breadcrumbs again.
Transfer the balls into wire rack or baking pan and spray or wash them with oil on top.
Preheat the oven on 390F/200C, and bake for 10 minutes, Once they start getting golden brown take them out of the oven spray just a little bit more olive oil and bring them back for another 5 minutes. Don't over bake them because they can start breaking.
At the end, I like to squeeze a little bit of lemon on top before consuming and dip them in tartar sauce.
