  1. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, cheeses, finely diced broccoli, ½ cup of the bread crumbs, and the salt and pepper.
  2. Quickly give it a taste, adjust seasoning if needed, then add in the lightly whisked eggs and mix until well combined.
  3. Place the remaining ½ cup of the bread crumbs in a shallow dish.
  4. In a heavy-duty skillet, or Dutch oven, heat 2-3 inches of oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Using a 1˝ scoop, shape potato mixture into balls and gently roll each one in the bread crumbs to lightly coat.
  6. Add the potato nugget balls in batches to the oil, cook 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Allow to drain on a paper towel-lined dish. Repeat with remaining potato balls.
  7. Serve with your favorite dips, such as ketchup, mustard or ranch dressing.
