Crispy, creamy, and zesty. If you adore Pecorino cheese, potato finger foods, and the velvet-like texture of pureèd veggies, look no further than the Mamablip Potato croquette recipe.
Ideal for a quick appetizer, the only prep time you'll really need is boiling time for your Potatoes, and you can pull together the remaining steps of your Italian Potato Croquette recipe while your potatoes cook.
If you have nice quality rustic style Italian bread at home that's getting a little long in the tooth, simply whiz that up in a blender to make fresh bread crumbs and substitute in the Mamablip recipe for Panko crumbs.
Both versions will give you a crispy Italian potato croquette that your friends and loved ones will simply gobble up! Whatever, if any, modifications you do choose, you'll want to keep the Pecorino cheese unvaried for its wonderful saltiness and edge, and the Pancetta used in your Red Bell Pepper cream sauce.
These ingredients add irreplaceable umami and sapidity to your tasty Potato Croquette recipe, so while many other options do exist and variations are welcome, be sure you don't skip out on these two building block ingredients as they'll take your classic Italian Potato Croquettes to assured levels of awesomeness!

In a bowl, squash the potatoes and add the finely chopped mint, the pecorini cheese and the yolks. Mix and amalgamate all ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. With your hands, make balls with the filling (5 cm diameter, more or less), and coat with panko.
Fry in peanut oli or sunflower seed oil until dark golden. Dry with kitchen paper.
Serve on red pepper cream.
In a medium sauce pot, coat bottom of pan with extra virgin olive oil, allow to hear. Coarsely dice Italian bacon, set aside.
Add garlic and allow to take on golden color before adding bacon to pan. Once bacon begins to brown, remove garlic and add tomato pulp or puree.
Allow sauce to boil, then adjust to taste with salt.
Lower heat, cover pot, and allow to cook very slowly for at least 30 minutes.
