3 cups stiff mashed potatoes (preferably cold)
2 medium-size eggs
1/4 cup of sliced green onions
1-1/2 cups of panko
Oil for frying
Heat about 1-1/2 inch of flavorless oil to about 375 degrees in a shallow frying pan (you want something with a pretty good surface area since the croquettes need to be fried in smaller batches to ensure that they’re not crowded).
Beat the two eggs lightly in a medium-sized bowl. Mix in the mashed potatoes and green onions. Using a 1-1/2 inch ice-cream scoop, make potato balls. Roll them onto a plate of panko.
Fry the potato croquettes a few at a time, and let each side turn into golden brown color, about 2-3 minutes total. Don’t attempt to flip them until the crust is developed and browned. Then flip to the other side, and let brown. Serve warm.
Makes 28 potato croquettes.
