Crispy on the outside, these golden Parmesan and Garlic Potato Bites are a delicious update to traditional mashed potatoes.


  • 2 Cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons Shallots (minced)

  • 1 Egg slightly beaten
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian Parsley (finely chopped)
