These fried appetizers are the perfect way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! Use our homemade brown gravy recipe or grab a jar at the store!



  • 1 package square wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes (leftover, homemade or store bought)
  • 16 oz. package mozzarella cheese cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 cup prepared brown gravy (homemade, store bought in jar or powder form)
  • Vegetable or canola oil oil for frying


  1. Fill a deep pot half way with the oil.
  2. Bring to 350 degrees over medium heat.
  3. While the oil is heating up, fill a wonton with 1 tablespoon mashed potatoes then add a cube of cheese to the center.
  4. Brush the edges with the egg wash and seal up to form a triangle. Make sure the edges are sealed well so that no filling leaks out.
  5. Fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Drain on paper towels then keep in a 250 degree oven until the rest of the wontons are fried.
  7. Serve with gravy for dipping.
