- For the cheesy meatballs: in a large bowl combine all the ingredients except for the cheddar cheese. Season well with salt and pepper to taste.
- Make little mince balls around each piece of cubed cheddar.
- Place onto a greased baking tray and bake in an oven at 180°C for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool until needed.
- In a bowl combine the MAGGI Mash, bacon and spring onion.
- In a separate bowl beat together the milk and egg; and in another combine the panko bread crumbs, garlic and salt.
- To make the bombs scoop up potato mixture and wrap around a cheesy meatball, dip into the bread crumbs, then into the egg-milk mixture and again into the bread crumbs. Repeat this for each meatball.
- Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 170°C and deep fry each ball until golden brown; approximately 3 minutes.
- Remove from the oil and drain on paper towel.
- While cooking; make the salad dressing emulsion. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and beat well until it comes together.
- Serve as a dipping sauce or drizzled over the potato bombs.
The potato bombs are an alternative to scotch eggs and are a definite crowd pleaser. The emulsion is a great way to make a healthier sauce/ dipping without oil or cream. Also can be made with only yoghurt rather than mayonnaise.
