      Very good croquettes. I used Parmesan cheese but the flavor did not come trough enough. Maybe I will use more next time or the Kefalotiri is just a better cheese to use. I coated them in greadcrumbs and fried them in olive oil. Served them with roast chicken and steamed runner beans.

      Made these as a side to pork chops. They were delicious. DH had his drowned in ketchup but that is normal. I had mine plain and they hit the spot. I get tired of potatoes the same way all the time. DH & I grew up with potatoes at every supper meal so it is hard to find different ways to cook them at times this is definitly a keeper. Thank You. made for ZWT4 for team CHIC CHEFS.
