Cheesy Potato Croquettes
Make these delicious Cheesy Potato Croquettes with leftover mashed potatoes ... they're easy to make and soooo tasty!
nonstick cooking spray
whole wheat bread
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a medium baking sheet lightly with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together mashed potatoes and egg until completely combined.
Cut gruyère into 12 long, narrow pieces.
Scoop one heaping tablespoon of potatoes into your hand.
Shape into a flattened oval.
Place a piece of the gruyère on top of the potatoes, then gently shape the potatoes around the cheese until it is completely covered.
Repeat with remaining potatoes and cheese. You should have 12 croquettes when you are finished.
Process bread in food processor until you have fine crumbs.
Add olive oil, salt, and pepper; pulse a few more times until everything is incorporated. Place in a shallow bowl.
Roll croquettes in bread crumbs, then place on the baking sheet, reshaping if necessary.
Bake the croquettes until heated through and golden brown, about 20 - 25 minutes.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
This recipe makes fairly large croquettes. Feel free to cut down the size, either in half or in thirds, if you'd like more, smaller croquettes.
The croquettes taste great on their own, but they're delicious with a sauce like marinara, as well.
I like to use gruyère for the filling, but any cheese that melts well will work. Sharp cheddar is also delicious!
