60 min
Serves 6 people


  • 1.5 kg potatoes
  • 6 eggs
  • flour
  • 300 g breadcrumbs
  • 50 g butter
  • nutmeg (grated)
  • pepper
  • salt


Step 1

Boil the potatoes until they are soft and then drain well, so they are as dry as possible.

Step 2

Mash the potatoes into a fine puree, stir in the egg yolks and season with nutmeg and salt. Leave the puree to cool down.

Step 3

Use a croquette maker or a piping bag to make the croquettes. Take a large bowl for the croquettes and add a decent layer of flour. Are all the croquettes ready? Shake the bowl to ensure that all the croquettes are coated with a thin layer of flour.

Step 4

Fill one small bowl with breadcrumbs and another small bowl with the egg whites. Whip the egg whites into peaks and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Roll the croquettes through the egg white and then through the breadcrumbs.

Step 6

Fry them a few at a time in a deep fryer until golden brown. Make sure you don't put too many croquettes into the fryer at once, as this increases the risk of them bursting open.
