Leftover Recipe: Potato Croquettes

I made mashed potatoes last night and had leftovers so I decided to make these croquettes tonight. The picture is not mine; it's from the Food Network, but they looked just the same. I wanted a sauce for them and developed one by combining a little mayo, a little cranberry sauce, a little bit of finely chopped jalapeno and lime juice with salt and pepper and mixed it. It was quite tasty with these croquettes. This is a great recipe for Thanksgiving or Christmas leftovers.

INGREDIENTS (makes about 15 croquettes)

  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped green onion
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Sifted dried bread crumbs (I used Panko bread crumbs)
  • Vegetable oil, enough to fill pan 1/2-inch
DIRECTIONS

Add milk, salt, pepper, chopped onion, beaten egg yolks and flour to mashed potatoes. Chill and then shape using an ice cream scoop. Dip in the beaten egg, then roll through bread crumbs. Fry each croquette in shallow oil until brown on all sides.

Cook's Note: Cook in small batches, giving each croquette at least 2 inches of space around it to not overcrowd the pan. This prevents the croquettes from crumbling while frying.
