Ham & Mozzarella Potato Croquettes

An easy recipe that’s perfect for summer holiday snacks or a dinnertime treat

Cooking PotMETHOD

  1. Bake potatoes for approx. 1hr (gas 5/190 degrees celsius) until soft and cooked through. Cool & mash until as smooth as you like.

  2. Combine with the remaining filling ingredients and form into croquettes.

  3. Roll each croquette into the flour first, then the egg mix, then the breadcrumbs to create a nice outer shell.

  4. Heat approx. 1-inch vegetable oil in a pan until hot enough to shallow-fry (drop a breadcrumb in to test – it should have fast/small bubbles fizzing around it). Pop the oven on low to keep things warm if you're cooking in batches.

  5. Shallow-fry the croquettes for about 45 seconds on each side, until golden all over. Pop on a piece of kitchen paper to drain any excess oil.

  6. Enjoy with some aioli dip or as they are.
