Potato ricer
Slotted spoon 

Directions

  • First wash the potatoes under running water and remove the soil. Put them in a large pot with water and cook for about 40 minutes. Then drain and let cool briefly.
  • Peel the potatoes while they are still hot and press them into a large bowl using a potato ricer. Grate the parmesan and caciocavallo cheese. Then add to the potatoes together with the egg yolk and season with salt, pepper and freshly chopped parsley.
  • Now mix everything thoroughly until a soft and dry mass is formed. Now take a portion of dough of about 25g/0.9oz each and form into small balls.
  • Then prepare two bowls. In the first, add the eggs, salt a little and whisk thoroughly. Fill the second bowl with enough breadcrumbs.
  • Now place each ball in the beaten egg, drain well and then turn in the breadcrumbs. Then place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Once all the balls are formed, put the sunflower oil in a pot and heat it to about 170°C/340°F.
  • Now fry a few pieces at a time in the hot oil. Turn several times with a slotted spoon. As soon as they are golden brown all over, remove and transfer to a large plate lined with absorbent paper.
    Tip: To prevent them from cooling too much, until all the balls are fried, put them in the oven on keep warm.
  • Then serve the fried balls of potatoes warm and enjoy!
    Buon appetito!
