Ingredients:

4 slices bacon, diced


2 cups vegetable oil, or more, as needed


3 cups leftover mashed potatoes


1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional


2 large eggs, beaten


1 1/2 cups Panko*


2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan

Directions:

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.

Heat vegetable oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat.

In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes, cheese, chives, cayenne pepper and bacon.

Using a small cookie scoop, roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch balls, forming about 25.

Working one at a time, dip balls into eggs, then dredge in Panko, pressing to coat.

Working in batches, add balls to the Dutch oven and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Serve immediately, garnished with Parmesan, if desired.
