Tuna-Cheese Potato Croquettes

My first attempt to do this recipe was way back College of year 2002 when we joined our school’s Trade fair. We were instructed by our Management professor to think of things or food to sell on the said trade fair and our group come up with the idea of selling street food. During the trade fair, Potato Croquettes was one of our best seller and professors keep on asking for the recipe. Since then, I always include this recipe whenever there is an occasion or just for a simple snack time since it is easy to cook and a best finger food. 

Potato Croquettes are mashed potato formed into balls, rolled into bread crumbs then deep fried. It is best mixed with tuna, ham or cheese and partnered with aioli sauce or just plain ketchup-mayo. It is a really good side dish, snack and appetizer that you will surely enjoy. 

Here’s how to make tasty Tuna-Cheese Potato Croquettes.

7. Heat cooking oil in the pan. It’s either you pan fry or deep fry the croquettes but much better and cook evenly when deep fried.
8. Fry in medium heat until it turns golden brown.
9. Damp it into paper towel to absorb excess oil.
10. Serve it with your favorite condiment. Either a simple mayo-ketchup mixture or an aioli sauce.
