2 C mashed potatoes, chilled
1/2 C gravy
1/2 C flour
1/2 C plain breadcrumbs
1/2 C parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten
1/2 C cream cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste
Vegetable oil, for frying
Pour gravy into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid, 1-2 hours, or overnight.
Remove from freezer and cut each cube into 3-4 smaller pieces, if using a large ice cube tray.
In three separate bowls, place flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs.
In a large bowl, mix mashed potatoes, cream cheese, parmesan, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper.
Wrap 3 Tbsp of potato mixture around one gravy cube.
Roll each ball in flour, dredge in egg mixture, and bread crumbs. Repeat with remaining potatoes and gravy cubes.
In a large pot or skillet, heat 3-4 inches of vegetable oil to 375 F degrees.
Making sure to not overcrowd the pan, fry in batches for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
Transfer, with a slotted spoon, to a paper towel-lined dish and let drain.
