Potato croquettes are usually small patties or rolls that are deep fried to a crispy golden brown. As the name suggests, mashed potatoes are a key ingredient to these little treasures, and they are usually rolled in dried breadcrumbs. Some recipes include a meat filling of some sort, while other recipes focus on the seasoning and delicacy of a plain croquette.

They can be whiped up in a snap and are a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. They are typically served as a side dish and are at home alongside most any meat entree, or they make great appetizers as well.

For some people, they are a traditional part of their Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday meals, however, with how easy these are to make, croquettes can make a regular appearance on your table throughout the year.

Croquettes originated in France, and their name derives from a French word meaning, “to crunch.” They quickly spread in popularity, and can be found in countries from Bangladesh to Poland, China to Mexico. Each country has made them their own, adding their own local flair and flavors. In the United States, New Englanders typically fill them with ham, while Southerners enjoy theirs with salmon or crab.

Whichever way you serve them, these delicacies are sure to be a hit at your home.
