Potato and mozzarella croquettes

Potato and mozzarella croquettes

Crispy potato croquettes stuffed with mozzarella are an excellent appetizer or accompaniment to meat, cuts of poultry or lamb. Let’s learn the procedure to prepare them!


– 200 gr. Potatoes

– 1 Egg

– 1 Egg yolk

– Salt and pepper

– 10 cc Neutral oil

– 100 gr. Flour

– 100 gr. Breadcrumbs

– 400 ml Neutral oil for frying


– Boil the potatoes and make a puree.

– Add the egg yolk.

– Cook over low heat, stirring constantly.

– Spread in a bowl, cover with film and reserve in the refrigerator.

– Prepare the mixture for the English breaded: beat the egg with a little neutral oil, salt and pepper.

– If you want to make croquettes only with potatoes, it’s best to fill a sleeve to make long and thick strips, and then cut them into sticks.

– If you want to make stuffed croquettes, it’s useful to use plastic wrap to finish shaping the croquettes, once the mozzarella strip is placed in the centre.

– Cool the sticks before proceeding to batter.

– Pass the sticks through flour, then through the English breaded mix (egg, oil, salt and pepper) and finally through breadcrumbs.

– Refrigerate 15 minutes.

– Fry in abundant oil at 180 degrees.

– Drain, season with salt, pepper and serve immediately.

– Enjoy your delicious potato and mozzarella croquettes!
