Potato, cheese, and ham, covered in a delicious breadcrumb coating. Mmm…. yes, please!

Every morsel is as creamy and cheesy as the last, so you might want to double this recipe.

What you need

  • 2 eggs

How you do it
How you do it
  • Line a 20 x 30cm baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Add the tube of Primula Cheese 'n' Ham to the mashed potato and mix thoroughly.
  • Fill 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.
  • Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, beat the eggs with 2 tbsp of cold water.
  • Put the flour, egg and bread crumbs into separate wide shallow bowls.
  • Remove the baking tray from the freezer, and cut each line of potato into 3cm long pieces.
  • Coat 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.
  • Bring 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.
  • Serve hot with relish and eat up!
