These Potato Croquettes are essentially breaded and deep-fried mashed potatoes. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and sure to please anyone and everyone!!!




Preheat the oven to 180°. Bake the potatoes in the oven for 1 -1 ½ hours until they are tender. Then scoop the flesh from the potato into a bowl and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper if preferred. Set aside to cool. Take a cube of cheese and mould some of the potato around it and shape into a ‘sausage’. Repeat this with the rest of the cheese and potato.


Place the flour onto a plate, beat the eggs in a jug and place the breadcrumbs into a bowl. Roll the croquettes first into the flour, then dip them in the beaten egg and finally roll them through the breadcrumbs, making sure they are completely covered. Place them on a plate or tray until ready to fry. You could also refrigerate them for about an hour, this will ensure that they will hold their shape, though I haven't had any problem with them falling apart. Pour the oil into a saucepan and heat on a medium heat to about 180-185°C. It is important that you take caution around the oil as it will be very hot. Deep fry the croquettes in batches for 2-3 minutes until they are golden brown in colour and crisp on the outside. Carefully remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper before serving. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated. Eat within two days

    What do you do with the flour, egg and bread crumbs?

    • J. N. Bishop

      Roll in the flour, then egg, then bread crumbs before frying. It forms the crispy shell

    • Fred Rainey

      Very poorly written. I would dredge them in flour, then the eggs and finally the bread crumbs. Hope that helps.
