How to make potato croquettes

How to make potato croquettes. Making potato croquettes is a fun and tasty adventure. Here’s how we can do it together:


  • 2 big potatoes
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Breadcrumbs (they’re like tiny pieces of bread)
  • 1 or 2 eggs (these will help things stick together)
  • Cooking oil (like the kind you use to fry things)


  1. Peel and Boil: Ask a grown-up to help you peel the potatoes. Cut them into small pieces, like the size of your thumbs. Then, put the potato pieces in a big pot with water and ask a grown-up to help boil them until they’re soft. That means they’re easy to squish with a fork.
  2. Mash the Potatoes: Once the potatoes are soft, ask a grown-up to help you drain the water from the pot. Then, use a fork or a masher (it’s like a special tool) to squish the potatoes until they’re all mashed up.
  3. Mix It Up: Add the butter, milk, salt, and pepper to the mashed potatoes. Mix everything together really well. It’s like making a yummy potato cloud!
  4. Make Little Shapes: Now, you can ask a grown-up to help you make little shapes from the mashed potatoes. You can make round balls or little logs – they’re like potato toys!
  5. Dip and Roll: Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix them up with a fork. Put some breadcrumbs on a plate. Take each potato shape and dip it in the egg, then roll it in the breadcrumbs. This will make them crispy and yummy.
  6. Cooking Time: Now it’s time to cook them! Ask a grown-up to help you with this step. Heat up some cooking oil in a pan – it’s like the magic potion that makes things crispy. Put the potato shapes in the pan and cook them until they turn golden brown. Grown-ups are really good at knowing when they’re ready.
  7. Drain and Eat: Take the potato croquettes out of the pan and put them on a plate covered with a paper towel. The paper towel will soak up any extra oil. Let them cool down a bit, and then you’re ready to eat your delicious potato croquettes!
