A great use for leftover mashed potato. Great for dinner with a garden salad.

I Loved this recipe... If you are making these and they fall apart in the pan, you are using too much oil. Also when you make the mash potatoes do not add too much butter and milk. If the mashed potatoes are too soft they will fall apart and the most important is do not forget the eggs. I will continue to make these. They were very easy and my family loved them. Thank you for the recipe.

Very good recipe, although next time I will omit the salt as the cheese added a good amount (based on other reviews, I used romano and cheddar). I also used minced fresh onion instead of dried and baked the croquettes at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes on each side. I sprayed them with a little olive oil before putting them in the oven, and they turned out nice and crispy without all the extra grease. I will definitely make these again!

Added more cheese and some flour to the potatoes as some had suggested. Used Panko crumbs instead of regular so that they turned out nice and crispy on the outside. Will make again---will try with sharp cheddar next time. 4 cups of potatoes made too much for 4 servings--will cut in half next time.
