A great potato side dish that is a bit different from your regular mashed or baked potatoes. Kids love these – what’s not to love….cheese and potatoes in one great package ! I often add canned green chilies or some steamed chopped up green bell peppers and steamed shredded carrots to give these a little extra flavor and some color.

1 package Oreida frozen steamed mashed potatoes
1 T light butter
Salt and pepper to taste
2 1/2 oz. shredded light cheddar cheese
1/4 c parmesan cheese
1 t garlic powder
1 large egg white
1 1/2 t skim milk
2 T water
2/3 c bread crumbs
Prepare potatoes according to package directions. Mix with butter, salt and pepper. Cool potatoes to room temperature and add cheeses and garlic powder. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with Pam. Make 24 balls and place on sheet of paper or foil. Mix egg white, water and milk in a small bowl. Put bread crumbs in a bowl. Dip balls in egg and then drop into crumbs to coat – do one at a time. Place on baking sheet and mist tops with more Pam.
Bake 10 minutes and serve immediately. If you have had the mix refrigerated over 3 hours, you may want to cook 15 minutes to make sure they are heated through.
