Cheesy Potato Croquettes

Hello there,  Want something to do with your potatoes? How about we make some croquettes. Cheesy ones at that. And we are going to make them long(shape) to mimic mozzarella sticks. This recipe does actually use mozzarella cheese. Or maybe you are looking for an appetizer, something to keep your guests busy while you finish up in the kitchen, these are perfect for that. OR if you are like me and you just feel like only cheese and potato will do right now, well help yourself to these. I mean the recipe. I wish I could literally give some to you but we are not yet there, vision2030? In the meantime let’s keep sharing recipes.

These are the white potatoes only.

You can also use sweet potatoes with the  white potatoes here but you can stick to one. I  really like all the different flavors combined.

These are the sweet potato croquettes, they are more delicate as the sweet potatoes are more moist, Lesson to be learnt from the picture above is to make sure you have covered the cheese with enough potato or they will start oozing as soon as you even gently touch them. Not that oozing cheese something we don’t like. Just try to poke at them with a fork . Boom! Explosion occurs!

Sweet dreams are made of cheese
who am I do diss a brie?
