In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes, eggs, parsley, cheese, salt and pepper, bacon and onion. Shape mixture into balls, and roll in breadcrumbs.
Pour oil into a large, heavy frying pan until it's about 1cm deep. Bring to a medium-high temperature; deep-fry the croquettes, flipping them over to cook on both sides, until they are golden brown. Serve hot.
