My tips for perfect potato croquettes

To get the perfect croquette, you have to choose from mashed potatoes, and then floury potatoes that would release much starch. You can cook them to steam or boil them. To keep intact as much as possible all the nutritional properties of the cabbage, I jump in a pan with extra virgin olive oil and covered, so that tired in his own vegetation water. Then you only need grated cheese (for me a mixture of PDO and Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Sardinian pecorino) and a semi-hard cheeses that cube, in baking, become stringy. I used a cheese, but you can use the smoked cheese, a sweet cheese or provolone. I do not recommend the mozzarella, which tends to lose water.

The breaded in cornmeal medium grain size makes these croquettes croccantissime: if you can not find it, you can use rice flour to keep the recipe gluten free. Or a regular flour 00. Is’ important to grease the croquettes with oil before impanarle.
