Did you know that you can fry just about anything? I’ve come to the conclusion you can. We all know fried food just tastes better. It does. I wish it didn’t but it does. Every now and then we just need something fried. Or is that just me?
We thought it might be fun to try out frying mashed potatoes. Yes mashed potatoes. Guess what? They’re amazing. They’re crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Plus when you dip them in homemade ranch dressing. WOW.
The trick to making these is to make sure your potatoes are frozen. Yes you’ll need to cook them and freeze them (you could even use leftover mashed potatoes which are already cold so you’re closer to fried food goodness.) Then you’ll cut them out using a cookie cutter. Stick with the smaller cookie cutters the larger ones will tend to fall apart. Sigh.
While your potatoes are freezing whip up a batch of my DIY Ranch Dressing to go with.
