Number of Servings: 8


    * Mashed Potatoes, 2 cup
    * Egg substitute 1/2 cup (equivalent to 2 eggs)
    * Flour, all purpose 1 cup (you could probably use wheat instead)
    * Bread crumbs, dry, grated, seasoned, 1 cup
    * Butter, salted, 1 tbsp (feel free to replace with olive oil, but the butter adds a lot of flavor)
    * Onions, raw, 1/2 cup, chopped (optional)
    * Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    * Fresh Parsley or other fresh herbs, 2 tbsp chopped (optional)


1. If you are using the onions, saute the onion in 1 tbsp of the olive oil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, beat 1/2 of the egg substitute (1/4 cup) into the leftover mashed potatoes until smooth.

3. Add the parsley (or other fresh herbs) and sauted onions to the mashed potatoes.

4. Slowly add the flour to the mashed potatoes until the mixture has a doughy consistency. Do not add more flour than you need to.

5. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and form into small flat cakes.

6. Lightly beat the other half of the egg substitute (1/4 cup).

7. Dip each cake into the egg and then dredge in the bread crumbs. Set aside.

8. Add the rest of the olive oil and butter to a large non-stick frying pan and bring to medium high heat.

9. Add the croquettes to the oil and fry until golden brown on the bottom and then flip and continue cooking until golden brown on both sides.

10. Serve immediately with apple sauce or fat free sour cream if you have them. Delicious!
