Baked Potato Croquettes

4 cups mashed potato, 1 day old
1 cup aged cheddar, grated
2 green onion, chopped finely
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
4 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
1 teaspoon nutmeg
sea salt and black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups panko crumbs
1/2 cup black sesame seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 F

Add all the ingredients to a food processor (except panko crumbs, eggs, and olive oil). Pulse until well combined and smooth. Season well with sea salt and black pepper.

Form into 4" by 2" cylinders. Dip in egg mixture and roll to fully coat in panko crumbs and black sesame seeds (optional). Place slightly apart on a greased baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more before baking.

Bake until cooked, crispy, and brown (about 30 minutes) turning over occasionally. 

Serve hot with any dipping sauce of your choice or as a side dish.

Great idea! I love croquettes, this will be a nice change from the potato pancakes that I usually make with my leftover mashed potatoes. I love the black sesame seeds.
