PREPARATION
PREPARING THE POTATOES

12.
Set up three deep bowls: one for the egg, one for the panko and one for the flour.
13.
Form mash potato mixture into desired size balls.
FRYING THE CROQUETTES
14.
Add the high heat oil to a small deep saucepan and heat it until it reaches 350 degrees. Adjust the temperature so that it remains between 350-375 degrees.
15.
Dip each ball first in flour, then in egg, then in the panko.
16.
Add croquettes to the hot oil 3 at a time. Cook for 2 minutes, or until light brown.
17.
Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a cooling rack or a paper towel lined plate. Continue to cook remaining croquettes, making sure the oil returns to 350 degrees between batches.
