  • 500 g potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 tbsp sliced green onions
  • 70 g Gouda cheese
  • 50 g Italian breadcrumbs
  • Salt, garlic powder, black pepper and paprika to taste
  • Olive oil (optional)


  • Peel and cut the potatoes and bring the water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until soft.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, slice the green onion, cut the cheese into small cubes, beat one egg in a small bowl and mix the Italian breadcrumbs with a little bit of garlic powder and paprika.
  • When the potatoes are cooked, drain the water, place the potatoes in a large mixing bawl and let them cool. Add the egg, green onion, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and paprika. Using a potato masher, mash everything together until smooth and well mixed.
  • Take a small amount of potato mixture and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Put a cube of cheese in the middle and cover with more potatoes. Roll the potato ball in your hands so that the cheese is completely covered with the potato mixture.
  • Coat the potato ball with the beaten egg and then with the breadcrumbs.
  • Place the mashed potato balls on a baking shit covered with parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil (optional). Bake at 400 F degrees for 20-25 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
