Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns, at room temperature
  • 1 (8 ounce) cream cheese
  • 12 cup pancake mix or 12 cup baking mix
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped


  1. Measure potatoes into a medium size mixing bowl. Add beaten eggs and mix thoroughly. Add pancake mix and dill and stir to combine. Allow mixture to sit for 5 or 10 minutes. Take a teaspoonful of the cream cheese and roll into small ball about the size of a marble. Using hands, take just enough of the potato mixture to totally surround the cream cheese ball and form into a ball, gently applying just enough pressure to hold potato mixture together. A little messy but kind of fun! Gently drop potato balls into hot oil with a slotted spoon and fry until golden about 3 -4 minutes. Allow to cool slightly -- cheese inside will be hot!
