Croquette

Crocchettone recipe by of 26-06-2019

The croquette is an appetizer that is occasionally found in the pizzerias of my city. It is essentially the maxi version of a common potato crocchè, then a potato-based dough that is breaded and fried, which after cooking is cut in half, as if it were a sandwich, and stuffed! In 2 words? A pleasure! The filling can of course vary, to start with I opted for a classic ham and mozzarella but you can go vegetarian, for example with mushrooms and smoked cheese, vegan with a mix of aubergines and peppers, or go down really heavy opting for sausages and friarielli ... the choice is yours!

Method

How to make the croquette

First wash the potatoes under running water, put them in a pot, cover with plenty of cold water and bring to a boil.
After 20-30 minutes from boiling the potatoes should be cooked (do the test by piercing a potato with a fork: if it slips off easily, the potato is cooked).
Drain the potatoes and put them in a bowl full of cold water, then peel them.

Mash them with a potato masher, then add egg, Parmesan cheese, at least 1 generous teaspoon of salt and pepper and mix.

Divide the dough in half, then form the 2 giant croquettes, shaping them with wet hands.
Pass them first in the flour, then in the lightly beaten egg, finally in the breadcrumbs.

Fry in already hot seed oil, turning them to brown evenly, then drain on absorbent paper.

Let them cool slightly, then cut them in half and stuff them.

Your croquette is ready, serve immediately.

THE KITCHEN PAPPE


I really love using the "leftovers", or looking at what's in the pantry and using it by putting it together, but as far as I understand you too
I make mashed potatoes in industrial quantities because if they want an encore and there is no such thing, I'm sorry, and I regularly advance it
  • some leftover mashed potatoes, I had a bowl full
  • crumbled crackers
  • extra virgin olive oil

shape some fairly large croquettes with your hands and roll them into crackers

* I often recommend this breading to those like me who are sensitive to the taste of dry bread that may have remained in a bag for a few days and has that aftertaste of. I don't know..muffetta. :)
It is not necessary to add a lot of oil, I like the extra virgin, if it is too intense use your favorite
in 5 minutes they will be golden and crunchy
put them gently on a plate
they are really good and tasty as a side dish!
