Potato and Ham Croquettes are a different take on the mince and white potato croquettes.

They are a little fiddly, but kids love anything that doesn’t need a fork and knife.

So great for family Christmas gatherings.


  1. In a large frying pan, melt butter and sauté the onion with salt pepper and nutmeg for about 5 minutes or until softened but not brown.

  2. Place onion in a large bowl. Add the mashed potatoes, cheese, egg yolk, cream, and ham and mix. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cover the potato and refrigerate for several hours.

  3. Get two plates and put flour on one, breadcrumbs on the other.

  4. Whisk eggs in another bowl.

  5. Then, take about a tablespoon of mixture in your hands and form into a ball to create the croquettes.
