Prep Time: 30 min | Cook Time: 10 min | Serves: 4-6
- 24 oz. Tasteful Selections® potatoes (Recipe favorite: White Delights)
- 1 tsp. salt
- ¾ c. feta cheese, crumbled
- 3 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 ½ tbsp. chopped fresh dill
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- All-purpose flour, for dredging
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- Lemon wedges, optional
Add salt, potatoes and enough water to cover the potatoes to a medium saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 8-10 minutes, or until desired tenderness. Drain potatoes.
To the drained potatoes, add feta cheese, green onions, dill, egg and lemon juice. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until they are smooth. Cover and chill until firm. Using a small scoop, divide the dough into marble-size balls. Flatten slightly and dredge in flour.
Add olive oil to a large pan on medium-high heat and heat for 2-3 minutes. Add polpettes to hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to plate lined with paper towel.
Serve hot with lemon wedges, if desired.
