Hill’s Ham, Bacon, and Cheese Potato Croquettes
Potato Croquettes are CRISPY on the outside, CREAMY on the inside and a great way to use up leftovers or start fresh with some of the best Ham around!
Step 1Add mashed potatoes, Hill's ham of your choice, Hill's Hardwood Smoked Bacon, cheese, garlic powder, chives and ½ cup flour to a large bowl. Stir together with a wooden spoon until combined.
Step 2Lightly flour your hands and divide the potato mixture into 16 small flat disks, about half an inch thick. TIP – use a cookie scoop to get perfectly even portions.
Step 3Heat oil in a heavy bottomed skillet (I recommend cast iron if you have it). TIP – you can test if the oil is hot enough by sprinkling a few drops of water in. If they sizzle, it’s ready.
Step 4Fry the croquettes in batches, flipping once, about 4 minutes per side until golden. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. TIP – don’t crowd the pan; leave space between each croquette so they crisp all around.
Step 5Cool 5 minutes before serving.
