Cheese-Filled Potato Balls

Honestly, you had me at "cheese-filled."


  • 2 pounds potatoes, boiled
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 5 to 6 mozzarella cheese sticks, halved
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Frying oil


  1. Mash the potatoes, let cool slightly, and add the egg yolks and flour. Add the parsley, season with salt and pepper, and mix well until a dough forms. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Form the potato balls and fill with the cheese sticks. Dip balls in breadcrumbs, then fry in hot oil. Drain on paper towels before serving.
