  • Roll cold mashed potatoes into 1-inch balls. Coat in eggs and roll in bread crumbs.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Fry fritters in the hot oil until golden brown, about 30 seconds, working in batches as needed. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

  • Mix cream, lemon juice, garlic, dill, salt, and pepper together in a bowl for sauce. Serve with fritters.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
