Sausage and Potato Croquettes

Sausage & potato croquettes - a smart and delicious way to repurpose leftover mashed potatoes into quick and easy dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Italian sausage, See Note 1 for substitute
  • 2 cups cold leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, brown the sausage until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together cooked sausage, mashed potatoes and parsley until well combined.
  • In a small shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
  • In another shallow dish, put the flour.
  • Using a large cookie scoop (I use this one), form the sausage mixture into patties.
  • Roll the patties in flour, shake the excess, and then dip in the beaten egg.  Arrange the patties on a baking sheet.
  • Heat half of the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • And fry the patties until eggs are cooked, 1-2 minutes per side. Remove the cooked croquettes onto a wire rack lined with paper towel. Continue with remaining oil and patties.
  • Serve warm for breakfast, brunch, or dinner.

Notes

Note 1: You can substitute ground beef with 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon salt.
