  • 3 Cups Leftover Mashed Potatoes
  • 3 Slices of Bacon
  • 2/3 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Lane’s Australia Garlic2 Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Lane’s Australia Magic Dust Seasoning
  • 2 Beaten Eggs
  • 1 1/3 Cups Breadcrumbs


  1. Bacon Bliss: Begin by crisping bacon over medium heat for around 8 minutes. Drain the crispy bacon on a plate lined with paper towels. Oh, that sizzling goodness!

  2. Mix it Up: In a large bowl, let the magic happen. Combine diced bacon with mashed potatoes, chives, shredded cheddar cheese, Lane’s Australia Magic Dust, and the flavorful Garlic2 Seasoning. Mix until it's a flavor party!

  5. Optional Garnish: For an extra touch of fancy, garnish the potato balls with a sprinkle of rosemary. Because why not make them look as good as they taste?

  6. Savour the Moment: Now comes the best part—enjoying your creation! These crispy potato balls are a flavor explosion. Serve them up as a snack or side dish, and get ready for the compliments!
