Cheesy Potato Croquettes

 1 lb potatoes (about 5 medium potatoes), peeled
 ¼ cup water
 8 oz Calef's Rat Trap Cheddar, grated (about 2 cups)
 1 tsp salt
 1 tsp pepper
 ¼ cup Unbleached Whole Wheat Flour
 2 large eggs, whisked
 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
 Olive oil cooking spray
Toppings: ketchup and parsley

1

Boil potatoes in water until tender, about 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes.

2

Preheat oven to 450°F.

3

Mash potatoes with a fork and add up to 1/4 cup of water, if needed to make them stick together a bit more. Add the cheese, salt and pepper, and mix to incorporate completely.

4

Form the potato and cheese mixture into 12 croquettes (these will be large but you can also make them smaller). Coat each croquette in flour, dip into the egg mixture, and cover in breadcrumbs.

5

Place the croquettes on a baking sheet and generously spray each croquette with cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown and cheese begins to bubble out.
