Another great recipe from Loretta Lynn's cookbook (I have also posted her Creamy Lemon Chicken). The balls are very flavorful, and the sauce is out of this world!

Prep:

Cook:

20 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

3 medium
potatoes
1/2 small
onion, finely minced
dash of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2
eggs
cracker meal, or panko bread crumbs

SAUCE

4 oz
cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 c
sour cream
4 Tbsp
green onion, finely chopped
2 Tbsp
butter, softened

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and cube potatoes. Cook til fork tender, then mash. Mix well with onion (you may lightly saute onion first, if desired), garlic powder, pepper, salt and one of the eggs. Form into 1 and 1/2 inch balls.
2
Beat remaining egg. Roll balls in egg, then in the cracker meal to coat well. REFRIGERATE for 8 - 10 hours. One half hour or so before cooking, remove from refrigerator to bring to room temperature.
3
For the sauce, combine all the sauce ingredients. *DO NOT HEAT. Saute potato balls in a little oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Serve with the sauce poured over.

*The heat of the potato balls will warm the sauce and melt the cheese a bit, - the contrast of the hot potato balls and the cooler sauce is delightful!
