Making new recipes with leftovers keeps meals from becoming boring. This is especially important in getting your children to eat the same thing two nights in a row. Bacon potato croquettes are a big hit with kids and adults aren't exactly disappointed about eating them either. Here is a great bacon potato croquette recipe:
Get out your mixing bowl and add the following ingredients: mashed potatoes, eggs, cheese, bacon, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix together with your hands until completely combined.
In the frying pan add enough oil to cover 1/2 way up the pan. Turn the know to high heat.
In a small bowl add plenty of bread crumbs.
Roll up your mashed potatoes in to little patties or ball shapes.
Add the mash potato balls to the bread crumbs until they are evenly coated.
Place each bread coated potato ball in to the frying pan when the oil is hot. Brown on all sides and remove.
Allow oil to drain from the potato and serve hot.
