    1. Add the mashed potatoes to a bowl along with egg, chopped parsley, salt and pepper. 
    2. Roll potato mixture into balls and then roll them in the pankp breadcrumbs and then set on a tray while you heat the oil. Make as many as you can with the potato mix. 
    3. When the oil is hot, fry the balls for a few minutes, rolling them around so they fry evenly. As soon as the balls come out of the oil place them on a paper towel and hit them with a sprinkle of maldon salt.

    My mom began making these in the 50’s. But with the addition of chunks of cheese. She used cheddar, we use pepper jack. Yum!

    Haven’t made this yet but it sounds pretty much like making potato pancakes, except you make those flat (like a pancake).
