Don’t know what else to do with your potatoes? Make Croquettes! The yummy potato croquettes are always a winner with my kids. They are a little time consuming to prepare, but it’s definitely worth all the fuss.

You can eat them plain or choose whatever sauce you want. I love it with sweet chili sauce.

Potato Croquettes


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, stir together mashed potatoes and parsley; season with salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, place flour; season with salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a third shallow bowl, place 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs.
  2. Scoop a tablespoon of potato mixture. Pinch the center and place 1/4 teaspoon of diced ham.
  3. Form potato mixture into 3/4-by-2-inch logs. Roll in flour, shaking off excess, dip in egg wash, then roll in breadcrumbs to coat. In a heavy medium saucepan, heat 1 1/2 inches vegetable oil over medium-high until hot. In batches, fry croquettes until golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per batch, tunring as needed. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
