Mix the parmesan and herbs with the breadcrumbs, then add the flour to a separate dish.
Beat the eggs, season with salt and pepper.
With your hands, shape 15 potato balls (more or less, depending on the size), then coat each one of them with flour, then dip into the egg, shaking off the excess egg, then coat with breadcrumbs.
Refrigerate for at least half an hour to firm up.
Heat up the oil into a deep pan, then fry the potato balls for 3-4 minutes until golden.
You might have to repeat the process a few times, depending on the size of your pan.
