Potato hotdog logs

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I don't love mashed potatoes but my husband does. So I try my best to serve him his favorite food with a slight twist so I can also enjoy it. :)

500 grams potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons butter, cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cocktail hotdogs, sliced in half crosswise
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten and mixed with 1 tablespoon milk
3/4 cup Japanese breadcrumbs
oil for deep-frying
ketchup and mayonnaise, to serve

Make the mashed potatoes: 
Boil potatoes in a medium saucepan until very tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and mash using a potato masher or fork. Add cheese, milk, and butter; mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Chill for 15 minutes. 

Cook the hotdogs: 
In a small frying pan, heat vegetable oil. Fry hotdogs for 1 to 2 minutes or until cooked. Let cool. Place about 1/4 cup mashed potatoes on your palm and flatten. Place a hotdog in the center then form into a log, enclosing the hotdog. Dredge in flour, dip in egg mixture, then roll in breadcrumbs. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients. Deep-fry in batches in preheated oil until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Skewer if desired. Serve with ketchup and mayonnaise on the side.
