These were good like this but next time I'll definitely be adding some scallion and maybe red pepper.
Cheesy Potato Bites
1 1/2 lb. potatoes, peeled and quartered
4 Tb butter or margarine
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 cup breadcrumbs
Place potatoes in a large pot filled with cold water. Bring to a boil and boil until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to pot. Let sit 2-3 minutes to absorb any liquid still left on the potatoes.
Add butter/margarine to pot and mash with the potatoes. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. (I skipped this and just mixed it all in the pot.) Add cheese, flour, egg, and seasonings. Stir to combine well.
Using 1-2 tablespoons of potato mixture at a time, roll into a ball. Roll balls in breadcrumbs until covered completely and place on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with melted butter or spritz with baking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until golden brown and lightly crunchy. (Mine weren't crunchy but I just sprayed them quickly with cooking spray. I think butter would work better and maybe even cook at a slightly higher temp to get them a little more crunchy.)
This recipe should make about 3 dozen potato bites, depending on the size. To freeze them, flash freeze on a large baking dish or baking sheet until firm, then transfer to a plastic bag.
