    Use approximately 2-3 tbsp or palm full of potatoes and insert the cheese strip in the center.
    Now roll the potato over the cheese strip so it encircles it
    Start rolling balls or football (cylindrical) shapes, make sure they’re well packed and not loose
    Roll into egg wash and then into your bread crumbs
