Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl combine first seven ingredients (through cayenne pepper). Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

  • Place flour in a small bowl. Place eggs in another small bowl; beat lightly with a fork. Spread almonds in a shallow dish. Shape potato mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in flour, then in beaten egg; roll in almonds to coat.

  • In a heavy saucepan or deep-fat fryer heat 2 to 3 inches of oil to 375°F. Fry potato croquettes, about six at a time, in hot oil 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Using a slotted spoon, remove croquettes; drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 200°F oven while frying the remaining croquettes. If desired, serve croquettes with ketchup.
