Recipe by oh noel

Korokke is Japanese fried mashed potato with vegetables and meat. My mom made these all the time when I was a kid. Its is a great portable snack that reheats well.

The first few bites we were all saying it was okay ... added a bit of hot sauce and suddenly we're fighting over the last korokke!! May add cheese next time for our "American" tastes but will definitely make this again.
