    About this recipe: My mother would always cook extra mash so we could have these delicious croquettes the next day. Over the years I have experimented with her basic recipe and sometimes will add grated Cheddar, chopped spring onions or bacon to the mixture.

    Serves: 6 

    • 4 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 150g (5 oz) mashed potatoes
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • vegetable oil for deep frying

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in the mashed potatoes and egg until well blended.
    2. Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy deep frying pan to 180 C. Carefully drop the potato mixture by spoonfuls into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from oil to drain on kitchen roll.
