Ingredients list


  • First wash the potatoes under running water and remove the soil. Then put them in a large pot of water and cook for about 40 minutes. Then drain and let cool briefly.
  • Peel the potatoes while they are still hot and press them into a large bowl with the help of a potato ricer. Then add the grated Parmesan cheese and the egg yolk, season with salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.
  • Now mix everything thoroughly until a soft and dry mass is formed. Then take a portion of dough of about 35g at a time and form the croquettes into the typical shape.
  • Then prepare two bowls. In the first, add the eggs, a little salt and whisk thoroughly. Fill the second bowl with enough breadcrumbs.
  • Now place each croquette in the beaten egg, drain well and then turn in the breadcrumbs. Then place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Once all the croquettes are breaded, put the sunflower oil in a pot and heat to about 170°C.
  • Now fry 3 pieces at a time in the hot oil. Turn several times with a slotted spoon. Once golden brown on all sides, remove and transfer to a large plate lined with absorbent paper.
    Tip: To prevent them from cooling too much, until all the croquettes are fried, put them in the oven and keep warm.
  • Serve the potato croquettes warm and enjoy!
    Buon appetito!


If you want to add more flavor, you can add finely chopped herbs such as sage, thyme and rosemary to the breadcrumbs.
