Potato, cheese and ham wrapped in a delicious breadcrumb coating. Mmm….
Yields: Makes 24
Primula Cheese with Ham
450g cold mashed potato
1 cup flour
Oil for frying
1Line a 20 x 30cm baking tray with baking parchment.
2Add the tube of Primula Cheese with Ham to the mashed potato and mix thoroughly.
3Fill a large freezer bag with the potato and cheese mix. Cut a hole in one corner, and pipe long rows of potato on the baking parchment, about 1.5cm wide. Place baking tray in freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up.
4Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, beat the eggs with 2 tbsp of cold water.
5Put the flour and bread crumbs into a wide shallow bowl each.
6Remove the baking tray from the freezer, and cut each line of potato into pieces about 3cm long.
7Coat each piece in flour, knocking off any excess. Dip the flour-coated piece into the egg to coat thoroughly, then roll in the breadcrumbs. Work in batches to make this task quicker and easier.
8Bring your frying oil up to a medium hot temperature, and drop in the potato croquettes. The oil should bubble when each piece is added. Fry, turning as necessary, until golden brown.
