I can’t think of a better way to eat cheese and potatoes than these incredible dumplings!
There’s something so incredibly comforting about the creamy flavor of cheese and potatoes. We especially love this combination when it’s rolled into bite-sized servings, coated with breadcrumbs, and crisped to perfection. When we came across a recipe for oven-baked cottage cheese potato balls, we couldn’t wait to dive right in.
The dumplings are hearty from the potato and creamy from all the cheese. We add texture by rolling them into a Panko-Parmesan cheese blend. They came out of the oven with a beautiful golden color, and the taste…amazing! They’re the perfect combination of crispy, cheesy, and creamy all rolled together in an irresistible nibble of delicious perfection!
