Potato Croquettes Recipe

Potato Croquettes look impressive, but they are very easy to make and a nice variation for a potato dish.


2 cups mashed potatoes
2 Tablespoons minced onions
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons parsley, minced
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil


Combine mashed potato, onion, egg, cheese, and parsley in medium bowl; mix thoroughly.

Shape into 8 croquette logs. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Spread bread crumbs onto waxed paper.

Dip croquettes in crumbs, turning to coat evenly; set aside.

Heat vegetable oil in large skillet on moderate heat. Place croquettes in hot oil; cook about 4 minutes, turning to brown on each side. Serve hot.
