Mashed Potato Zeppole

Leftover mashed potatoes make the perfect base for my zeppole doughnuts- just form into balls, fry lightly and roll in sugar. Serve with my cranberry sauce dipping sauce as an appetizer or dessert!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes (at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (plus 1/2 cup, for rolling)
  • 4 tablespoons 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)

Instructions

  1. This recipe originally appeared on Giada's Holiday Handbook. Episode: That's a Wrap! Party.
  2. Puree the cranberry sauce with the nutmeg and lemon zest in a food processor. Reserve.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed potatoes, milk, 1/2 cup sugar, melted butter, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy-bottomed pan until it reaches 350 degrees F. Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow bowl.
  5. With a 1-tablespoon scoop, carefully drop the batter into the hot oil, work in batches to avoid crowding the pan. Fry until deep golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side, turning with a slotted spoon. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain for a few seconds, then roll in the sugar.
  6. Serve with the cranberry dipping sauce.
