Cheddar cheese Mashed Potato Croquettes with Breadcrumbs

I opted for the left over mashed potatoes and made them into something somewhat naughty yet also so lovely!! Should you have a couple of of these along with some barbequed fish as well as a healthy salad the thoughts associated with Thanksgiving dinner will probably be long erased.

These are typically somewhat belligerent  I am going to confess. Not really for the inexperienced. You must have left over mashed taters. They’ll come out different according to your mashed taters. Mine happen to be really light as well as fluffy plus they had sour cream with them such as when you’ve created a make in advance mashed spud casserole.

You will want the oil very hot obviously however, not too hot that the exterior may burn and the cheeses won’t melt in the center. I wouldn’t proceed straight into offering them for a social gathering if I hadn’t made them previously. I made a batch and they turned out to be fantastic.

To assist you to shape them I personally use wax paper.

Position oblong mounds of potato and then shape to 4-4 1/2 inch long upon wax paper, place a piece of cheese which is 2 1/2 inch long by 1/2 inch in to the middle. With the wax paper rollup and ensure the potato is actually covering all of the cheese equally. You could include a bit of flour in your mashed taters to create a dough however I used just straight mashed.

  • Mashed potatoes
  • Cheddar cheese which has been cut intp 2½ inch by ½ inch pieces
  • Eggs, beaten
  • ead crumbs
  • epper and salt
  • Garlic Salt
  • Olive Oil for frying


  1. Blend in flour when preferred. You'll need it regarding looser potatoes. Place a lengthy bit of wax paper over the counter and then form oblong mounds with mashed spud. Form them directly into 4½" inch long mounds and then flatten somewhat. Put the cheese in the middle of the mound. Making use of the wax paper to roll, create them in to logs. Proceed with the potatoes till you have sufficient created and you've used up the left over mashed taters. You can even make these directly into small balls. Could be simpler to work with should you have never made them previously. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. (essential step)
  2. Heat up oil within a wok. Include 2 to 3 eggs right into a rectangular dish and then stir. Add the bread crumbs directly into another, season along with fresh garlic salt as well as pepper and salt. Begin with lesser quantities you could always incorporate more eggs or crumbs as required. As soon as taters have been chilled very carefully roll all of them in the eggs and then the bread crumbs. Fry till gold brown in the oil. Ensure the oil isn't too hot. You need them to turn gold brown gradually, if they're done too rapidly the cheese will not melt. Remove to your paper towel covered plate and then season using sea salt. Keep heated within the oven on low as you're making more.
