Make these cheesy mashed potato balls for a dinner side dish this weekend. Parmesan cheese and cream cheese flavor these unusual breakfast potatoes.
This side dish is made with mashed potatoes, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, green onion, and onion soup mix and makes these a nice alternative to the usual breakfast potato side dish. The potato balls are rolled in corn flakes to add some extra crunch and flavor.
One of the nice things about this breakfast recipe is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze them in small quantities. When you are ready, just thaw and re-heat in the oven. Serve these potatoes with eggs, quiche, ham, pork, or cooked sausage links.
