Potato Croquettes

By

Potato and cabbage croquettes are coated with flour and fried.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 8 ounces shredded boiled cabbage, well drained
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • fresh nutmeg, grated
  • salt and pepper
  • all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • oil, for frying

Preparation:

Mix the potatoes with the cooked drained cabbage, egg, cheese, nutmeg and salt and pepper. Divide and shape into croquettes or patties.

Chill for 1 to 2 hours, if possible. Chilling the mixture will make it easier to keep the croquettes together. Dredge the croquettes in the flour.

Heat about 1/2-inch of oil in a frying pan until it is hot. about 160°.

Carefully slide the croquettes into the oil and fry on each side for about 3 minutes until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towel and serve hot and crisp.
