Potato Croquettes

Beth Pierce


Potato Croquettes are crisp fried breaded mashed potato patties. Parmesan cheese and chives are added to the potatoes to provide the ultimate taste bud experience. Two minute garlic aioli dipping sauce takes this over the top!
Hubby just loves these potatoes!! They reheat perfectly on a baking sheet in a 425 degree oven for a couple of minutes each side. Don’t skip the garlic aioli dipping sauce! It is AMAZING!
