Potato and Cheese Croquettes - Uppity Chicken Spice Blend

Uppity Potato and Cheese Croquettes


  • 2 large Russet Potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour

  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs

  • 1 teaspoon No. 85 Uppity Chicken Spice Blend

  • Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste

  • Vegetable Oil, for frying


  • Place the diced potatoes in a pot and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the potatoes until they are tender about 15-20 minutes.

  • Drain the potatoes and mash them with a potato masher until they are smooth.

  • Add the cheese, and egg to the mashed potatoes. Mix well to combine.

  • Season the potato mixture with No. 85 Uppity Chicken Spice Blend, salt, and pepper to taste.

  • Shape the potato mixture into small cylindrical shapes, about 2 inches in length and 1 inch in diameter.

  • Roll the potato croquettes in the flour, then dip them in the beaten egg, and coat them with breadcrumbs.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot over medium-high heat, until it reaches 375°F (190°C).

  • Drop the croquettes into the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove the croquettes from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

  • Repeat the process with the remaining potato mixture, making sure not to overcrowd the fryer or pot.

  • Serve the potato and cheese croquettes hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley.
