Potato Croquettes Recipe 1

Ingredients for Potato Croquettes Recipe 1

  • 1 pint mashed potato (fresh or left over)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Milk or cream
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Add the well-beaten egg to the potato, and sufficient milk or cream to make the potato as soft as can be shaped into balls with the hands.
  2. (If fresh mashed potato is used, it may not be necessary to add any milk or cream.) Beat one egg with one tablespoon water and a pinch of salt.
  3. Dip a ball of the potato into the egg, then roll it in zwieback crumbs.
  4. Place the ball in a croquette mold, close the mold, and tap the closed end on the table in such a way as to force the contents into that end.
  5. Smooth the open end.
  6. Open the mold and remove the croquette.
  7. Place the croquettes on an oiled pan and bake fifteen minutes in a hot oven.
  8. Serve with cream sauce or egg sauce made by adding one chopped hard-boiled egg to one pint of cream sauce.
