We had a lot of left over Ham and Mash Potatoes from our Easter Dinner so I searched online for a few recipes on what to make with leftovers such as casseroles and pies. Honestly I did not think my kids would eat it if I were to have made a casserole with our left overs. I decided I would make croquettes instead. It is a real simple recipe and very tasty. I used Mash Potatoes, Ham, shredded cheese, egg, flour and breadcrumbs and you can dip it with your favorite condiment. I served it to my kids for breakfast with ketchup and mayonnaise mixed up and they loved it. It took me less than and hour to make. You can make this as a snack or serve it for lunch or dinner easy to make and everyone will enjoy it. You can add different spices as well to kick it up. Here is a step by step process on how I made Ham Mashed Potatoe Croquettes. You will need the following ingredients as follows below.
- 2 cups of Mash Potatoes
- 1-2 cups of diced up Ham
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 cup of Flour
- 1/2 of Bread Crumbs
- 2 Cups of Shredded Cheese I used Mozzarella, you can use Cheddar
- Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, once it is all combined form into patties and fry.
- Heat 2 Tablespoon of oil into a shallow pan and fry each side for 3-4 minutes.
Enjoy with your favorite condiment!
