Default Awesome presentation/technique - world of new ideas?

Last night I went to a favorite local place and they did a dish that was called the "Compact Turkey Dinner." It was amazing. It was roasted turkey, chopped kind of chunky, and mixed with herby stuffing and cheesy mashed potatoes. It was then all combined into a baseball-sized ball, battered, and then (I assume) quickly fried so it had a brown crispy crust. Three balls of awesome were then presented on a plate slathered in tasty gravy.

That got me thinking - what else could be balled up, battered and fried? Smoked pork, sweet corn, and mashed potatoes? Cod, potato pancake, and slaw? Chicken, wild rice, and root veggies? Any ideas?

Not smoked meat , but fits the bill otherwise.

My family prepares "sauerkraut balls". In a single bite you get to eat a german sausage & sauerkraut platter (though addition of spicy sausage is better in my opinion). This is my absolute favorite Christmas Eve dish.

And I love your ideas for new fried "balls".

Creamy's beet loaf!
Maybe diced ham, scrambled eggs & shredded taters (hashbrowns).
Or how about a deep fried baseball sized calzone?
P,B & J?
Nancy Pelosi?

Could be done with smoked meat... With the right filler.

owner of a local brewery (Vintage 50) opened a taphouse (The V Eatery and Brewhouse. was supposed to be a brewhouse, but that plan was scrapped, don't know why). your pork abts reminds me of the Kansas City Skins on the menu at the V

they are tasty and delicious. way overpriced. I only had them because they had the brewfest volunteer orientation meeting there and offered free appetizers.
