  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying


  1. Peel and chop the potatoes into small pieces. Boil them in a pot of salted water until they're soft and tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and mash them with a potato masher or fork until they're smooth and free of lumps.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, all-purpose flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Mix well.
  4. Beat the egg in a separate bowl.
  5. Use your hands to shape the potato mixture into small balls, about 1-2 inches in diameter.
  6. Dip each ball into the beaten egg and roll it in breadcrumbs until it's fully coated.
  7. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan or pot over medium-high heat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, carefully drop the potato balls into the oil and fry them until they're golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  9. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the potato balls from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  10. Serve the potato balls hot and enjoy!


  • Make sure to mash the potatoes well to avoid lumps in the potato balls.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or melon baller to shape the potato balls for more uniform size.
  • If the potato mixture is too wet, add more flour to make it easier to shape.
  • If the potato balls are falling apart while frying, dip them in egg and breadcrumbs again for a thicker coating.
  • Don't overcrowd the frying pan or pot to ensure even cooking and crispy potato balls.
  • Serve the potato balls with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup or aioli.
