Loaded Fried Mashed Potatoes
Step up those leftover spuds.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 2½ c. Mashed potatoes
  • ½ c. shredded sharp Cheddar
  • 1 tbsp. sliced chives, plus more for garnish
  • ½ tsp. Hot sauce
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • All-purpose flour (optional)
  • 1 container sour cream
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add enough oil to fill the pan a third of the way up.
  2. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, cheese, chives, hot sauce, salt, and egg. Form into half-dollar-sized dough balls, and drop by the spoonful into the warmed skillet. [Note: If your mashed potatoes are a little runny, add flour one tablespoon at a time until you can form dough balls.]
  3. Fry the mashed potatoes a few at a time (without crowding the pan), cooking each side until lightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Top potatoes with sour cream and additional chives before serving.
