Creamy Cheese Croquettes

Hubby loves the Potato Croquettes served at Sakae Sushi. They aren't difficuilt to make but making them can be messy. He's just been back from a business trip and was all tired and stressed. So to cheer him up a little, I decided to make them for dinner tonight. To make it a little more special, I added cream cheese filling in the middle. It tasted really yummy, golden crispy crust, soft creamy cheese and fluffy potato were just perfect! I baked these instead of frying them, so it was not oily at all. Less mess for me to clean too. Hubby had 3 words to say while gobbling them down "Wah....GOOD leh!" Hahaha...

Here's what I did:

- 2 big potato
(I prefer steaming them, boiling them seems to dilute its taste)
- 1 tsb of cream / milk
- 1 tsb of mayonnaise
- small cubes of cream cheese
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- breadcrumbs

- skin, cube then steam the potato till soft
- when potatos are done, add cream, mayonnaise and season with a good dash of salt & pepper
(I was quite generous with the salt if not the potato will taste bland)
- mash the potato and mix well
- shape mashed potato into balls, make an indentation in the middle & put in cream cheese cube
- seal/cover well & reshape patty
- roll the patty in egg wash then cover in breadcrumbs
- lighty pat breadcrumbs into patty to make sure they stick
- preheat oven at 200 deg, and bake patties for 10-15mins or till crust are golden.

Sorry, the last pic was a little messy coz we couldn't wait to get started on it. =)


  1. My kiddos will loves this cheesy. I will give this a try, healthy choice of no deep frying required.

  2. Ya, baking it is so much easier. I hate frying stuff.
