Italian Potato Balls

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds Potatoes
6 tablespoons Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons Finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons Butter
3 tablespoons Finely chopped parsley
1 salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 Egg
Fat for frying

Preparation

1
Peel potatoes and boil in salted water until cooked. Mash and combine with egg yolks and cheese in a large mixing bowl.
2
Saute finely chopped onion in butter until golden but not brown. Add to potato mixture with parsley and generous amounts of salt and pepper. Mix to a smooth paste and form into small balls the size of a large walnut.
3
Makes about 24 balls.

Beat eggs with a fork until well blended. Roll potato balls in flour and then in beaten egg. Coat with breadcrumbs and chill until ready to use.
5
Heat fat (I prefer a mixture of olive oil and lard) to frying temperature. Fry a few potato balls at a time until they are golden in color and heated through.
