Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Potatoes Peeled, chopped
  • 50 g Parmesan Cheese Grated
  • 50 g Butter
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 50 g Plain Flour
  • 3 Eggs Beaten
  • 100 g Breadcrumbs
  • Salt To taste
  • Black Pepper To taste
  • Vegetable Oil For frying


  • Boil the chopped potatoes in a pot of salted water until soft, then drain and mash them with a potato masher or fork.
  • Mix in the butter, egg yolk, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into small croquette shapes and place them on a plate or baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate the croquettes for at least 30 minutes to firm them up.
  • In separate bowls, place the flour and breadcrumbs.
  • Dip each potato croquette in the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip in the beaten egg, allowing any excess to drip off. Finally, coat in breadcrumbs.
  • Heat enough vegetable oil in a deep pan or fryer to cover the croquettes.
  • Once the oil is hot (around 180°C), add a few croquettes at a time and fry them until golden brown, turning them occasionally for even cooking.
  • Remove the croquettes with a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  • Serve the potato croquettes hot as a side dish or snack
