Makes about 25 balls:

3 large Red Potatoes, 450 g (1 pound) raw and unpeeled
100 g (3,5 oz) Mozzarella Cheese
50 g (1/2 cup) Parmigiano Reggiano (or Parmesan), freshly grated
Black Pepper

For Breading:
3 Eggs
50 g (1/2 cup) All Purpose Flour
200 g (about 2 cups) Homemade Breadcrumbs
5 g (1 tbsp) Paprika

1. Peel potatoes and soak in cold water to remove starch excess.
2. Cut potatoes in big chunks.
3. Boil potato chunks in salted water until fork tender.
4. Meanwhile slice Mozzarella cheese and cut it in small cubes (about 0,5 cm – 0,2 inch).
5. Place mozzarella cubes over a kitchen paper and press one kitchen paper over to absorb water excess. Set aside.
6. Prepare the breading: in three separate medium size bowls palce flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs.
7. Combine the bread crumbs with salt, black pepper and paprika. Set aside.
8. Prepare potato balls: drain boiled potatoes and place them in heat proof bowl.
9. While still hot, place them in a potato ricer and push them (or you can use a potato masher).
10. Grate Parmigiano Reggiano in the warm mashed potatoes, season with pepper and mix until well combine.
11. Add salt to taste.
12. Use a tablespoon to take equal portions of potato mixture and form into balls (every ball will be about 16 g – 0,5 oz).
13. Make a hole in the center of every ball and fill it with cubed Mozzarella cheese. You’ll get about 25 balls.
14. Coat each ball in Flour first, then dip into beaten Eggs, then roll into Bread Crumbs mix, then deep into Eggs again and one last time into Bread Crumbs mix.
15. Place all the breaded balls in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and place them in refrigerator until heat the oil.
16. Fill a large pot with vegetable oil (I used Peanut Oil) and heat over medium heat until it reaches 350° F (175° C).
17. Deep fry potato balls until golden brown, for about 4 minutes. Be careful not to over-fry them because the Mozzarella may ooze out completely.
18. Drain the balls on a paper towel.
19. Season with salt and serve immediately with your favourite sauce.
