Potato Croquettes With Parmesan

"Croquettes are delicious with steak and Recipe#292323 and strawberries dipped in chocolate. They should be shaped into patties and refrigerated ahead of time. The timing here does not include the chilling time. I have changed the directions about refrigerating the patties ahead and the number of patties after looking at the kind reviews. I do love this recipe and hope you do too.:)"

    I had some leftover mashed potatoes so I decided to give this recipe a try. I didn't have onions or parsley, so I used garlic and fresh basil. I was skeptical but it turned out really delicious. I had no problem with them staying together. I topped each one with an over-medium egg, some tomato salad on the side, and voila...dinner is ready. Thank you for an effortless, yet tasty meal.
    Delicate and not an overpowering flavor. Although I increased the amount of cheese to one quarter cup. I had the idea to bake these but they weren't crisping up as I hoped and lightly fried in a little grape seed oil. Fresh parsley from the garden and we enjoyed the leftovers for breakfast yesterday. For best results, the mixture was prepared first thing in the morning, refrigerated, shaped then cooked. Reviewed for Veg Tag November.

    My mother always made these and I loved them. She always added some minced garlic to them - delicious. Instead of the breadcrumbs she rolled them in flour - I'm going to try them with the breadcrumbs.

    These were very good! There are only two of us but I made a full recipe and flash froze the ones I didn't use before cooking so that they are ready for next time I want to make them. Thanks WiGal! Made for Holiday Tag.

    I made my mashed potatoes specifically for this recipe, so I didn't add anything other than salt, using fleur de sel. I grated my onions, as specified. The taste of these is really good, and everyone enjoyed them. I refrigerated these for about an hour and a half before cooking them. I think I should have let them stay in the refrigerator longer....I couldn't get them to stay together...but they were delicious anyway. I made these for Family Favorites, ZWT5.

    I had to make a couple of subs, due to intolerance reasons I used spring onion instead of minced onions and as I am the only one in the family that likes parmesan cheese I used a sharp cheddar cheese, everything was going fine until I plated up and then they fell apart between pan and plate but we still all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you WIGal, made for Please Review My Recipe.
