Okay, so I’m not even going to fib, this idea came from a video I saw on Facebook where this guy made some mashed potato spoon fries. I was like, WHAT, I have to try this. Well, let’s just say I epically failed because I just assumed it was simple, mash thee potato’s put them in a mold, freeze then fry. Well, needless to say that did not work out at all. I probably should have paid better attention to the video, lol.

I was super bummed about my failed attempt at my Mashed Potato French Fries made using the spoon mold and I told my daughter about it and BAM she was like, “Mom I think you are probably supposed to put cornstarch in them.” She is so smart, I seriously never even thought about cornstarch, lol. I did do a little double take by checking out another video making Mashed Potato French Fries to make sure and she was without a doubt right, I should have added cornstarch.

So, this isn’t an original recipe at all, I did not come up with the idea all by myself, so I cannot take all the credit for this amazing appetizer! It started with the spoons, confirmed the cornstarch, and figured out how much of each ingredient to add. Regardless, they are delish and I highly suggest taste testing after adding your seasonings just to be sure you have them seasoned to your liking.

Serves: 3 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 500 calories 10 fat


  • 4 potatoes
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4-1/2 shredded cheese
  • seasonings (I used Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic salt you can use whatever you like.)


  • Boil potatoes until they are soft, and be sure to add a little salt to the water while they boil.
  • Drain the water and mash potatoes, add butter, cheese and seasoning and mash until mixed completely.
  • Add corn starch, continue to mash until completely mixed.
  • Place potatoes in a piping bag, cut a hole in the tip, and make strands.
  • Place the strands of mashed potatoes in hot grease and cook until golden brown.  You may want to roll the potato strips on to a spatula and then place them in grease, which seems to work best for me.
