Crocchette di Patate

Proverbio Italiano of the day:
"Come semini Così raccogli."
Meaning: You reap what you sow. My Mamma always uses this saying with us.

Whenever I have to think of side dishes and what I love most... potatoes come to mind. Ah yes potatoes--- french fries, potato chips, mashed potatoes, potato soup, baked potatoes... potatoes are just plain AWESOME. 

They taste amazing anyway you make them in my opinion, and go well as a side dish. 

Crochette di Patate are so easy to make, and only require a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand in the kitchen anyway. 

There are a variety of ingredients that can be added such as ham or ground beef, but this recipe is simply potatoes and mozzarella cheese. Buon Appetito!


4 to 5 potatoes 
2 eggs
1 tbsp. parmigiano cheese
salt to taste
seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
diced mozzarella cheese
vegetable oil to fry

let's make it

1. Place water in a pot, and add potatoes in. Potatoes must all be covered in water. 

2. Boil potatoes until soft.

3. Let potatoes cool, and peel off the skin.

4. Use a potato ricer and pass all potatoes through. 

5. In a side bowl, separate the eggs.

6. Mix egg yolks, parsley, parmigiano cheese, salt, and milk together with potatoes. 

7. Once mixture is ready, form potatoes into little dumplings. Then squish some diced mozzarella in pocket of it, and then close it up again.
