Goooooooood day, people!! Today, I am going to teach you how to make "Panzerotti di Patate" A.K.A "Potato Croquettes".
This recipe is one of those classic, signature southern-Italian appetizers that you'd find your Nonna frying up in the kitchen in a cottage in the middle of vineyards near the sea. In Italy. Or in Europe... Or in ...Milwaukee... ??? NOOOOOT!! No, but, really- your grandmother could definitely fry these up in a kitchen in the cottage in the middle of-- well, not vineyards-- but trees-- in Milwaukee... Ehem...
So, let me begin by saying that I have an intense passion and obsession for potatoes and cheese... Separately AND together... BUT, combined I must say, is soooooo much better. Potato love, people... Potato love. Oops... I was supposed to begin...
I HAVE AN INTENSE PASSION AND OBSESSION FOR POTATOES AND CHEESE.
These are incredibly delicious and easy to make. Awesome for a dinner-party or just to content the kids!! Or hubby... Or chihuahua. ((grimace))
BTW, these are best fresh from the fryer, so if you have to make them ahead of time, sprinkle some bread crumbs on top and reheat in the oven before serving.
