Deep-Fried Mashed Potatoes

Yeah, you can tell these are good just by looking at them. Serve them as a side or an appetizer.

I found the original recipe over at Copy Kat's.

Makes: 12 rolls
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Printable Recipe


  • 1 lb russet potatoes, peeled, and chopped into 1" cubes
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 T butter
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg
  • Oil, for frying
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

1. Put potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain well then place into a large bowl.

2. Smash potatoes with a masher. Add butter, cream, and salt and pepper to taste and mix.

3. Add all but a few tablespoons of the green onions (reserving the rest for garnish) along with the bacon to the potatoes. Also add 1/4 cup of the cheese.

4. Whisk the egg with one tablespoon water.

5. Lay out wrappers and add potatoes (about 2-3 tablespoons at a time). Roll up and secure ends with egg wash.

6. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or deep fryer to 350 F. Add rolls in batches and cook until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

7. Serve rolls topped with remaining cheese and green onions and sour cream for dipping.
