Potato Croquette Recipe
The main ingredients
An egg or two
Make sure to season the bread crumbs with salt and pepper.
For the potato, season it well but don't make it too soft.
Mold the potato to your desired shape and size. Just make sure to mold the firmly press the potato first then shape. To make them even, use a flat surface to shape evenly. Shake off the excess flour but be gentle. Dip into the whipped egg (add a little water to make it less thick). Shake off again any excess.
Now dip into the bread crumbs and make sure it's fully covered. Give a gentle squeeze to make sure the bread crumbs stick. Set them aside ready for deep frying.
Make sure the oil is hot enough before you start frying. The bubbling should be gently like this the moment you start cooking. After about 2-3 minutes remove from the oil, onto a plate lined with paper towel.
Try cook them evenly to the same color. See the photo of the final batch t the beginning of this recipe.
