Kittencal's Baked Cheesy Mashed Potato Patties/Croquettes

Total Time

Since I make these all the time I really don't even bother to measure, the ingredient amounts listed are close to the amounts I usually use you can adjust the amounts to taste, I have left the Parmesan as optional I like to add it in --- for the best texture the potatoes must be russet and they should be oven-baked --- I have use panko in place of the butter crackers but I think the crackers give a better taste --- yield is only estimated depending on the size you make the croquettes --- you may make the mashed potato mixture up to 24 hours in advance and refrigerate until ready to roll and bake ----- you will love these!

  1. Cook the potatoes until fork-tender, transfer to in a large bowl then mash with a potato masher or a fork until fluffy.
  2. Add in the remaining 10 ingredients; mix very well to combine and adjust all seasonings to taste; cool slightly then mix in the egg.
  3. At this point you may refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  4. Shape about 3 tablespoons of mixture into a ball.
  5. Roll into the cracker crumbs and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Press down with hands to flatten just slightly.
  7. Repeat with remaining mixture.
  8. Set oven to 375 degrees and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

These were really good. The flavor and texture was very very good. Two changes I would make to the recipe. I would lower the amount of seasoning salt to 1 tsp or maybe 1 1/2 tsp and up the baking temp to 400 or 425 to really give the outside a golden brown and a little crunch. Outside of that, this will become a keeper! Thanks for the recipe.

YUMMY. I love potato croquettes! The cheese was a great addition. I thought I'd try freezing the leftovers, but there weren't any! After baking the potatoes, I used a potato ricer to get a nice even consistency.

It was pretty good, but I think I should have adjusted the seasoning more.
