My dear readers, today I’m sharing with you one of our family treasures! These potato croquettes are just perfect with any meal as a side, or as a snack, breakfast, lunch dinner… can be eaten hot or cold, soft in the middle and crunchy on the outside, and can be made out of leftovers! Convinced? Give it a try, you will love them.
leftover potato pure or cooled cooked mashed potato
white flour – for about 1 cup of potato pure I used around 200-300g, couldn’t really tell. You need as much flour as it takes to form a nice smooth ball that doesn’t stick to your fingers
salt to your liking
In a big bowl, mix together the ingredients and add flour until a non-sticky ball can be formed. On a floured surface roll out the dough into strings (about 2-3cm thick) and cut them into pieces. Fry them in hot oil and serve with anything you like! I served them with leftover salsa brava.
If you are not frying them right away, the croquettes can be frozen – line them up on a floured tray (better if they don’t touch) and put the tray in the freezer. When they are cooled completely, you can transfer them to a bag to take up less space in the freezer. When ready to use, just remove from the freezer and fry them in oil. They will be just as good as fresh!
