1 egg scrambled

Vegetable Oil for frying


  1. Wash potato skins very well and dry them

  2. With the skin on; prick each potato three times with a fork on two sides

  3. Microwave potatoes on high for ten minutes. The skins will allow the potato to steam cook but having pricked them the potato with not explode. Making them this way the potato will not absorb any liquid such as when you boil them.

  4. At ten minutes check if the potato is cooked by piercing it with a fork and looking for the fork to easily go through. Take out the potatoes that are cooked and if some potatoes are not done keep microwaving a minute at a time until all potatoes are cooked.

  5. Cool down the potatoes

  6. Skin the potatoes using a knife

  7. Mash potatoes into a large bowl – I use a ricer which pushes the potato through

  8. Make a whole in middle of the potatoes and add onions, ham, parsley, garlic salt and first scrambled egg

  9. Mix everything together with your hands

  10. With lightly floured hands, pick up tablespoon size of potato mixture and flatten into a small pancake

  11. Place cube of mozzarella in the center and wrap potato mixture around the cheese

  12. Do this until all the mixture has been used

  13. In one bowl combine breadcrumbs and parmesan

  14. Have a bowl for flour and a bowl with scrambled egg ready as well

  15. Start with coating ball with flour, then dip in egg and lastly coat with breadcrumbs

  16. Do this until all the balls are ready to fry

  17. In a small skillet heat oil and fry potatoes in batches until browned on all sides

  18. Transfer fried potato balls to paper towels to drain excess oil

  19. To bake potatoes - preheat oven to 390˚F and bake until golden brown on all sides
