1packet of Original Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mixreserve 1 tbs for coating
3/4cupshredded sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mash together the potatoes, butter and all but one tbs of dressing mix. Once smooth, mix in shredded cheddar.
Mix together the bread crumbs with the tablespoon of ranch dressing mix you reserved earlier.
Take small dollops of the potatoes (a tablespoon or a little less), and roll them into balls. Drop a few balls at a time into the crumb mix. Roll around and gently press down to from chubby little croquette patties.
Place the patties on parchment lined baking sheets and spray or baste will oil. Make sure to coat them well, so you will get a crispy crumb coating.
Once both sides have a coating of oil, bake for approximately 9 to 10 minutes until bottoms are crisp, then gently flip and bake for another 8-9 minutes.
*if you have leftover mashed potatoes they will work fine, just don't add more butter
