150g Mr Crumb Breadcrumbs
250g mashed potato
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
100g leftover chicken, chopped
100g leftover ham, chopped
Oil, for frying
Mayonnaise / Chutney / Chilli Sauce – Whatever you fancy!
1 Combine the mashed potato with the parsley, two beaten eggs, chicken and ham. Mix gently to combine and season with pepper.
2 Place the flour, remaining beaten eggs and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls.
3 Use a tablespoon to scoop the croquette mixture and, using floured hands, roll it into balls or cylinder shapes.
4 Roll each croquette in flour, then dip into the eggs and coat in the breadcrumbs.
5 Arrange the finished croquettes in a single layer on a tray or plate lined with kitchen paper, then place in the refrigerator.
6 Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat or in a deep fat fryer.
7 Fry the croquettes in small batches to keep the oil temperature constant. Lift out when golden brown and drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot with a salad and your favourite dipping sauce!
