The weather has been very weird lately. Just when you think the nice weather has arrived, we get blasted with more winter! At least it feels like it. I find the cold weather makes me want to cook and eat comfort food.
Today, I thought I’d try something my Mom used to make, that I loved, Croquettes. I love anything potato and although I don’t eat them too often, today was a potato day!
My Moms’ version was potato, (cooked of course), put through a ricer and then parsley, garlic, egg and Parmesan cheese was added. She hand formed them into fat looking cigars, then rolled them in flour and were pan-fried in olive oil till golden brown!
I can still remember waiting patiently for her to put them on a plate so I could devour one, or two. They were so delicious and fluffy and almost fell apart if you didn’t handle them with respect!
Well, I tried the ricer, which I borrowed from a friend, but that didn’t work out! I guess I’m not ricer savvy, Hehe. So I ditched it and used a fork.
These are nowhere near the ones my Mother used to make, but they did turn out quite tasty!
Hope you like them!
