Beer-Cheese Potato Bites

I found these potato bites over at Culinary Cool and after reading that they are made of mashed potatoes, beer, cheese and bacon rolled in crackers and fried, I pretty much thought they sounded perfect!


2 cups mashed potatoes
1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup beer
2 spring onions, chopped
6 strips bacon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper 
3/4 cup ritz cracker, crushed
1 egg
vegetable oil for frying 

In a food processor, add potatoes, cheese and beer and blend until smooth. 

Place the potato mixture in a large bowl and mix in the spring onions, bacon, salt and pepper.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Place the crushed ritz crackers in a shallow bowl.  Crack the egg in a small bowl and whisk.

Form the potato mixture into small balls and roll in the egg followed by the crackers.

Heat the oil to 375 and fry the potato balls until golden brown.
