It has been an eventful week! Thank goodness we had the extra day to rest. Although, I could use a few extra hours in my day to do everything I need to, I always try to make time to prepare something new for my family, even though Matthew could eat chicken nuggets and mac and cheese every day of his life. For me it’s one more opportunity to practice my most recent passion: Photography. I confess that I am a complete novice… but I’m really enjoying it!!
BTW they seem to enjoy the time when mommy cooks as well… Aren’t they the cutest helpers ever?
This recipe features one of my favorite ingredients: Potatoes.
Like Matthew with chicken nuggets, I could eat potatoes every day of my life!
To start take 5 medium potatoes, wash, peel and cut them into pieces. Cook them in a pot over medium heat, with enough water and a teaspoon of salt, until fork tender.
This is how your mixture will look like after you incorporate all the ingredients.
Shape your croquettes in any form you want. In this occasion, I decided to make cylindrical croquettes so it’d be easier to put the piece of cheese in the center.
