Step 1

Add potatoes to the pot and fill it with water, season with salt and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and boil potatoes for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked thru. Drain the water, then add butter and mash potatoes with potato masher.

Step 2

Cool potatoes, they have to be room temp. Add green onion, salt and pepper, garlic powder, mix.

Mix 2 cheeses together in a bowl. Whisk eggs in small bowl. Place crushed flaming hot Cheetos in another bowl. Use ice cream scooper to scoop mashed potatoes. Press finger into the center of the potato ball and put cheese into the center, cover the sides and roll into a ball.

Step 4

Roll potato ball in egg mixture. Then roll it in hot Cheetos or bread crumbs. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, freeze for 20-30 minutes (it's a very important step, if you skip it the balls might fall flat after air frying, please don't skip this step).

Step 5

Preheat the air fryer to 375F. Place cheese potato balls into the air fryer and spray with oil. Air fry for 10 min flip to the other side after 5 min. Enjoy!
