DIRECTIONS

  • Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until tender. Drain.
  • Put potatoes back in pan and heat over low flame until completely dry, stirring to prevent scorching.
  • Put potatoes in a food processor with the egg yolks, butter, salt and pepper. Pulse a few times.
  • Add the nutmeg, sherry, parmesan, mustard and parsley. Pulse until the consistency of very thick mashed potatoes. If the mixture is too wet or runny, put mixture in a large bowl and incorporate a bit of flour, working in with your hands.
  • Adjust seasoning, then form small cylinders (about 3 x 1 inches).
  • Roll croquettes in seasoned flour to cover, shaking off excess.
  • Dip in beaten egg mixture, then roll them in breadcrumbs. Set aside and repeat until all potato mixture is used up.
  • Deep fry at 375 degrees until golden brown, drain and keep warm until served.
  • NOTE: these can be prepared in advance thru step #7 and refrigerated in an airtight container. Bring to room temp before frying.
