Bacon and cheese croquettes

Ingredients

  • 4 rashers middle bacon, trimmed, finely chopped
  • 2 cups cold mashed potato (see related recipe)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 40g mozzarella cheese, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Azalea grapeseed oil, for shallow-frying
  • Mixed salad leaves, to serve

Method

  1. Step 1 - Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook bacon for 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp. Drain on a plate lined with paper towel.
  2. Step 2 - Combine mashed potato, egg yolk, onion, bacon and 1/4 cup flour in a large bowl. Roll heaped tablespoons of mixture into 20 balls. Push 1 cheese cube into the centre of each ball. Mould mixture around cheese to enclose.
  3. Step 3 - Place remaining flour on a plate. Place breadcrumbs on another plate. Whisk egg and milk together in a shallow bowl. Roll croquettes in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg mixture. Coat in breadcrumbs.
  4. Step 4 - Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook croquettes, in batches, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Serve with salad.
