Loaded Mashed Potato Bites

Adrienne May


Found a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. These remind me of those bites that they used to serve at Arby's. Hope you enjoy.

Yum! These taste just like a loaded baked potato. They'd be great for a party and a perfect recipe for leftover mashed potatoes.

Just make sure your mashed potatoes are pretty stiff. If not, add about 1/4 cup of flour to the mix to stiffen them so that they'll hold together when frying. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Loaded Mashed Potato Bites


  1. mix all ingredients except for bread crumbs together in a large bowl. (this recipe calls for leftover mashed potatoes so the potatoes will most likely already be seasoned so add just a bit more salt and pepper.)
  2. shape into 1 inch balls or use a cookie scoop. roll balls in bread crumbs to coat completely.
  3. heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees in an electric skillet or use large frying pan on stovetop. fry potato balls in small batches for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. drain on paper towels.
