Boil the potatoes till tender. Peel and then mash them.
Using your hands, mix the mashed potatoes with the flour, half of the breadcrumbs, eggs, cheese, chopped parsley and a little bit of pepper and salt.
Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large saucepan. Make croquettes that are oval and cylindrical, and dredge them in the rest of the breadcrumbs. Cook them a few at a time in the hot oil until golden brown.
Place the croquettes on a plate lined with kitchen roll to drain the excess oil. Serve the croquettes hot.
Peel the hot potatoes by holding them with a fork and then peeling them with a knife.
