Ingredients

  • 250g plain mashed potatoes* 
  • 4 spring onions 
  • 40g jalapeno 
  • 120g grated cheese of choice  
  • Salt and pepper to taste  
  • 140g bag crisps (we used bacon crispies) 
  • 2 eggs, beaten 

*leftover mash with lots of butter, milk or cream may yield suboptimal results in this recipe, as it will go quite soft once reheated, and not hold its shape.  

Instructions

  1. To start your Bacon Puff Croquettes meal, slice the spring onions and dice the jalapeno.  
  2. Place thecrisps into a bowl and use the jalapeno jar to crush them into fine crumbs. Add the eggs into another small bowl and whisk.  
  3. Place the mashed potato, grated cheese, jalapeno, spring onions and salt and pepper to taste into a bowl and stir to combine.  
  4. Form handfuls of the mash into 6-8 squat batons. 
  5. Dip the potato batons into eggs, then into the chip crumbs, then back into the eggs and into the crumbs again before placing it onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining potato until all the potato battons are breaded into croquettes. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes. This will help them keep their shape while cooking 
  6. Place the croquettes into the air fryer and air fry at 200C for 4-5 mins. Remove and serve your Bacon Puff Croquettes immediately with your favorite dipping sauce
