If you want to enjoy these snacks later, prepare a bunch of croquettes and put them in the freezer. You can heat them up later, seconds before serving.

Directions

  • 2 Cut the cooked eggs into relatively big pieces.
  • 3 Take some of the mashed potatoes and make a small ball the size of a golf ball.
  • 4 Press the center of the ball and fill it with some of the cooked egg.
  • 5 Close the ball and shape it into an oval, in a typical croquette shape.
  • 6 Roll each ball in flour, then cover them in the beaten egg and roll them with bread crumbs.
  • 7 Fry the croquettes in hot oil and place them on absorbent paper once they’re golden.
  • 8 Serve immediately.
