“My family love potato croquettes, I always purchased them from the store, but Alas! A few months ago bought frozen potato croquettes vanished out of the store. When I enquired, I was told that they were taken off the market. I decide to make my own and came up with this recipe. I find it’s best to prepare the potatoes the day before then leave them in the refrigerator until the next day. The following day put them into the egg then flour then fry them. Cooling in the freezer on the day of preparation cuts the preparation time in half I serve these potato cakes with Salmon, kingklip, hake, prawns or soles, coleslaw and a large green salad. Best of all my family love these potato cakes.”
