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!
We've got loads more ideas on finger food options to check out, as well as oodles of appetizers to check out on the Mamablip recipe index. C
