Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb Simply Potatoes Traditional Mashed Potatoes
  • 3 eggs (mostly the yolks)
  • 2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese (any cheese works but mozzarella i feel is the best)
  • 14 fluid ounces oil (for frying)


  1. 1. Mix the potatoes in with the egg yolks (i like to put just a little bit of the egg whites from one of the eggs).
  2. 2. Cut cheese into julienne strips that are about a 1/2 in long, no bigger than your thumb.
  3. 3. With your hands form the mash potatoes around the cheese into a shape that's best described as "Twinkies" shape.
  4. 4. Roll the croquet's into the bread crumbs.
  5. 5. in a large fry pan, fry in the oil until crispy brown then prepare to enjoy one of the tastiest appetizers of all time.
