Did anyone else's Grandmother make Potato Croquette without Breadcrumb?
My Grandmother passed away when I was a little over knee high.. but I remember her Potato Croquettes which did not have a breadcrumb coating.
My father, who claims to have watched my Grandmother many, many times, says that she took a handful of regular mashed potato, stuck a piece of mozzarella cheese in it, shaped it into a cylinder and fried it.
I have tried doing it many, many times. I can not do it. I tried mixing egg into the potato.. It just falls apart.
I was hoping someone else's grandmother did something similar.. and that you know a little more about it.
If you're using only egg and potato I'm not surprised that they're falling apart, especially if they're russets. If you're wanting to make them using only potatoes and cheese, try using white potatoes (either the long whites or the round) or if you're open to adding some other ingredients, try adding about about 2% rice flour and 15 - 20% beaten egg.
