Potato Croquettes



4 potatoes (2lbs.) peeled and cubed
1 garlic clove
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3 eggs
2 Tbsp. flour
3/4 cups dry breadcrumbs
Veggie oil for frying


In a saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes and garlic for 15 minutes till tender.............drain.

Using a potato masher, mash potatoes adding butter, salt and pepper....let cool completely.

Stir in 1 egg and flour.

Form by 2 Tbsp. into 12 cylinders....or 1 Tbsp. into 24.

In a shallow dish, beat remaining 2 eggs. Place breadcrumbs in a second shallow dish.

Dip one at a time, into egg mixture then roll into breadcrumbs to coat. Place on a baking sheet.

In a large saucepan or deep fryer heat about 1 1/2" oil til deep fryer reaches 350 deg. or 1 cube of white bread turns golden in 30 seconds.

Fry croquettes in batches for about 4 minutes or til golden.

Drain on paper towel........

****Can be made for up to 24 hours ahead......reheat at 425 deg. F. for 7 minutes til crispy.
****I used Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, gives it a better flavour.

Thanks for stopping by.
