Rated 4.5 out of 5 based on 5 votes


  • 500 g pontiac potatoes
  • 2 x eggs, separated
  • 50 g parmesan
  • 50 g pecorino
  • 1 bunch flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 100 g diced ham
  • 200 g cubed mozzarella
  • 250 g bread crumbs
  • 500 ml peanut oil


Boil the potatoes in their skins until tender. Leave to cool slightly, then peel and press through a ricer while still hot.

When cool transfer it to a large bowl and add the egg yolks, parmesan, pecorino, parsley ham, salt, pepper and mix to combine

Take a tablespoon of mixture and form it into a long fat finger shape. Push a cube of mozzarella into the middle and close the mixture over.

Lightly whisk the egg whites in a shallow bowl and place into breadcrumbs next. Repeat till all complete.

Heat a deep frying pan with peanut oil; make sure the oil is not smoking. Cook the croquets in batches, do not over crowd the pan.

Serve as they are, they can also be eaten cold.
