Fresh Fast 28/02/2018

What could be better than bacon, cheese and mashed potato all wrapped into one crunchy croquette?

These are the perfect entertaining snack, and will be a favourite amongst all ages.

Serves: 4-6
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 5 rashers streaky bacon, cooked and cut into pieces (we love Hellers)
  • 2 cups cold mashed potato (we use Wilcox Red Jackets)
  • 1/4 cup flour + extra for crumbing
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 egg
  • 1tsp minced garlic
  • 1tbsp dried oregano
  • 100g camembert, cut into cubes (we love Food Snob)
  • 1-2 cups breadcrumbs
  • Olivado Avocado oil, for frying


  1. In a bowl, combine the bacon, mashed potato, 1/4 cup of flour, egg yolk, garlic, oregano and seasoning. Mix well.
  2. Roll the potato mixture into even sized balls, and set onto a tray. Push a camembert cube into each ball, and roll so they cheese is covered by the potato.
  3. Pane each croquette by rolling in flour, then dipping in egg and coating in breadcrumbs.
  4. Deep or shallow fry the croquettes until golden brown and crispy, and keep warm in the oven if necessary. Serve immediately.
