early morning ramblings

Last night I made potato balls. On the way home I was thinking about what I would be making for dinner. This is what I came up with.

1 giant potato
1 quarter of an onion diced as small as you can
1 teaspoon of olive oil (based on size of potato mixture as you don’t really want wet potatoes)
1 teaspoon of basil, or dill
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1 egg
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
(all of this is not to the T as this was an on the fly dish-you may alter to suit)

boil potato, cool and cut into cubes, (medium) 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch (smaller will need less crushing)
crush with your knuckles (you can put plastic wrap over your hand formed into a fist)
do not mash, if you must- do so only 1/4 of the way, then 3/4 crush with hands
add oil, pepper, salt and basil into bowl with the cubes and hand MIX
heat oven to about 300
form into balls
dip into beaten egg, and then dip into bread crumbs
for thicker and crisper crumbs, add walnut or pecans crushed
raise heat to 400
let balls cook till they brown

optional–put cheese in the middle of potato

Cooked in Oven
