  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Peel and boil the potatoes until tender. Drain and mash the potatoes until smooth.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, grated cheddar cheese, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, minced garlic, parsley, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Take a small portion of the mixture and shape it into a round patty. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make more rissoles.
  4. Place the flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs in separate shallow bowls. Dip each rissole into the flour, coating it evenly. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Finally, coat the rissole in breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry the rissoles in batches until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  6. Remove the rissoles from the pan and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy these delicious cheese and potato rissoles as a tasty appetizer or snack.
