Bacon and cheese croquettes Directions

  1. Make mashed potato first by bringing water to a boil. Place potato in and cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain water and return back to pot. Add milk, butter and season with pepper and salt. Mash until soft.
  2. Heat a medium non stick fry pan over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  3. Place potato, egg yolk, onion, bacon, garlic and 1/4 cup flour into a bowl. Mix to combine. Shape heaped tablespoons of mixture into 20 balls. Push a cube of cheese into centre of each ball, shape around cheese to enclose.
  4. Place remaining flour on a large plate. Place breadcrumbs on another large plate. Whisk egg and milk together in a shallow bowl. Roll croquettes in flour, dip in egg mixture then coat in breadcrumbs.
  5. Pour enough oil into a medium, frying pan to come up 5mm of pan. Cook croquettes in batches, turning 3-4 times or until golden. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining mix.
  6. Serve with sweet chilli sauce and salad.
