Croquettes are one of those things you can make to use up small amounts of leftovers and turn them into something with a different texture so it doesn’t seem like you’re eating leftovers. I made potato croquettes with our leftover mashed potatoes today. They were great with some leftover gravy, although my daughter preferred hers with ketchup.
They’re a bit like homemade Tater Tots.
The measurements don’t have to be precise so don’t worry if you have a bit more or less than 2 cups of mashed potatoes. I also used leftover egg yolks this time rather than whole eggs. We had decorated gingerbread houses on Saturday so I had lots of leftover yolks from making icing with the whites.
