• 1 package Ore-Ida Steam n' Mash Cut Russet Potatoes
  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup romano cheese shredded
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg lightly beaten


Microwave potatoes according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, preheat oil in a 3 quart heavy saucepan over medium high heat to 375° F.

In a large bowl, mix together hot potatoes, milk and butter, and mash with a potato masher until smooth. For a smoother consistency, mix with an electric mixer to desired consistency.

Stir in cheddar cheese, romano cheese, flour and egg, and mix well.

Drop 2 Tablespoons of batter into hot oil for each and fry for 1-1/2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.

Fry 6 to 8 at a time to avoid overcrowding the oil. Drain on paper towels.

Garnish with grated romano cheese and serve with your favorite marinara sauce if desired.

Tip: If desired, substitute shredded romano cheese with shredded parmesan cheese
