Mustard-Coated Crispy Potato Bites
Prep Time: 
Cook Time: 
Total Time: 
Serves: 8 servings
  • 2 Large baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 Tablespoon butter
  • ½ Cup milk
  • 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ Cup Maille Dijon Originale mustard
  • 1 Cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • Canola oil for frying
  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until fork tender. Drain and mash together with the butter and milk. Allow to cool completely or refrigerate overnight before making the crispy balls.
  2. Stir the cheddar cheese, flour and parsley into the cool mashed potatoes and add salt if needed.
  3. Add the mustard to one shallow bowl and breadcrumbs to another. Using a 1 oz. scoop, roll balls of the potato mixture, coat with the mustard (note that it is easier to do this with a brush) and then with the breadcrumbs.
  4. Bring about 3" of oil to a temperature of 350 degrees and fry the potato balls, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pot. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes, rotate and fry for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the outside is golden brown.
  5. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
