I introduce you to “Simple Potato Croquette”. This is a great main dish for dinner and also a great snack for kids after school. The ingredients are potato and onion. Usually we add ground meat to the patties before frying in Japan, but when you don’t have any ground meat in the refrigerator or if you follow a vegetarian diet, you don’t need to add any meat. You can use sweet potato if you want. Just adjust the seasoning because sweet potato has a different taste from regular potato. Also you can add various ingredients, such as carrot, broccoli, spinach, corn, cheese, crab meat and so on.
Boil potatoes, sauté onions and mix well like mashing potatoes. Season with some salt and pepper.
Make into patties, flour, dip in beaten egg and dredge the patties in bread crumbs.
Fry. To store, put the patties in a plastic zipper bag and keep in the freezer. You can store before and after frying either way.

Please do not drain the used oil in the sink. Put some kitchen papers in a can or a jar which you don’t need and pour the cooled used oil in. Throw it out as regular garbage.
