- 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
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.
