And now for something totally different - potato croquettes. Recommended to make a double batch from the start. During Passover substitute matzo meal for bread crumbs.

  • Prep Time
  • 4 - 6Servings


  • 4 large Russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small onion, peeled
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons milk or non dairy substitute
  • 2 teaspoons chives, fresh or frozen
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Grate potatoes and onion in food processor and transfer to large bowl, or grate the potatoes and onion by hand directly into a large bowl.

2. Add remaining ingredients to make a thick batter. If the batter is too thin, add more bread crumbs until you can easily pick the batter up in your hands.

3. Form into 4 to 6 pancakes.

4. Heat a skillet with 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or regular margarine or vegetable oil until the fat is hot. Add the croquettes a few at a time in order not to crowd the skillet.

5. Cook on both sides until brown and thoroughly cooked. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

6. Keep warm on paper towels in a very low (200 degree) oven.
