If you're looking for a recipe more exciting than regular French fries, but still in the same vein, these mashed potato fries are not to be missed. Mashed potatoes are combined with 3 different kinds of cheese, fried to golden perfection and served with ketchup for the ultimate snacking experience.

This recipe is very simple to create and will have your friends and family's mouths watering the second they see the plate.

You can buy or make any dipping sauces you like, but we recommend ketchup, ranch, or mustard for a truly satisfying snack you're sure to crave over and over. 

Serves2 - 3 Servings

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time1 min


  • 1 2/3 cup chopped russet potatoes, cooked, mashed and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Colby-Jack cheese
  • 3 tablespoons corn flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a medium bowl combine and mix well the mashed potatoes, parmesan, cheddar and Colby-Jack cheeses, corn flour, egg, milk, salt and pepper.

  2. Place in a piping bag.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a sauce pan to 340 degrees.

  4. Snip end of piping bag and carefully drop batter in long French fry shapes into the hot oil and cook until golden and crispy about 1 minute.

  5. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain.

  6. Serve with ketchup.

Can I fry leftover mashed potatoes?

Leftover mashed potatoes aren't exactly snackable! While indulging in a big bowl can be fun, finding unique ways to transform leftovers into something new is the best way to stretch your big meals into two or three! 

You can fry leftover mashed potatoes! In fact, their consistency might be a little bit better for frying since they will stick together better while creating your fries or balls. One thing to keep in mind if you do plan on frying mashed potatoes is storing them correctly for the next day. Instead of placing hot and steamy potatoes in the oven, make sure to let them come to room temperature first. This will avoid getting excess moisture in your leftovers that will make them easier to fry.

I love everything potatoes so this one, I really like. It has all the ingredients of a yummy potato recipe - cheese and potatoes then fried. I love this. Can't wait to try.

Ok, never did I ever think I'd hear mashed potatoes and fries being one...this is just too good to be true, and with three different types of cheese? Omg, yes, please! You know what would probably be awesome in this recipe and give it a little kick at the same time? Jalapeno peppers diced up and mixed into the potato-cheese mixture. I seriously can't wait to try this. Yum!!!

The fries were awesome and I wish I had more! This would be a fun appetizer.

Whoa - definitely wouldn't have thought to make this on my own so I'm so glad I tried these! These were so good - I agree with Erin, I definitely could have eaten WAY more of these.

YUM! These were flavorful and delicious. I could have snacked on them all day.

I really enjoyed this fun take on traditional french fries. I'm not sure the cheesy flavor came through, but they were delicious nonetheless!

I love fries and this was a fun take on the French fry. I would try them again!

These were like mashed potatoes. But in fry form! What a time to be alive.

These were so good! The texture was totally unique (in a good way), and the dipping sauce possibilities with these are endless.

I love mashed potatoes but I never would have thought to make them like this. They were delicious!
