  1. A even better way is as follows:
    200gm bacons pieces
    1 finely chopped onion
    Matured cheese grated to suit
    Ikg Potatoes
    Pkt Panko breadcrumbs
    2 Eggs
    1 clove garlic

    Peel and boil potatoes until nearly cooked.
    Put the garlic, onion and the bacon pieces in a frypan and gentle cook
    Remove the potatoes and drain, now combine the contents from the frypan and the potatoes together.
    Add the cheese and break down the potatoes as you would normally do with milk but only use the grated cheese instead.
    Form into small balls about 40mm and dip in the egg and breadcrumb, then police to one side.
    Using the frypan gently brown off the breadcrumbs and cook for about 3 mins in total.
    Serve with gravy, or even place some in the freezer for another day. They keep so well only requiring reheating when needed.

    When you eat them the combined flavours will entice you to have another, I am sure. For some reason placing them in a deep fry does not work, it must be done in a frypan with spray of olive oil to stop sticking, and aids in browning the breadcrumbs.

    Off you go and try! Please let me know how you go
