In another bowl whip together 1 egg, parsley, cheese, onion, salt and pepper and bacon.
Add to potato mixture and whip until well combined.
Place mixture in freezer for about 20 minutes do not freeze - just till very cold- makes frying crispy.
Pan 1- 2 beaten eggs
Pan 2- the cornstarch
Pan 3- the bread crumbs
Place on plate and chill in freezer 15 minutes or so. Do not freeze just very cold while oil is heating up to 350^ in deep heavy pan or deep fryer.
String 3 balls on thin sticks or skewers carefully or fry single.Lower into hot oil on a slotted spoon. Keep your eye on these- when they are done they will float to the top- but if you see that they are sticking -give them a gently nudge- do not over crowd them in the fryer. Cook until lightly browned.
Serve with ranch dressing or honey mustard.
