If you thought potato croquettes were purely a Spanish thing, think again. These Italian-style crochette, filled with provolone cheese, are the perfect appetiser to share this weekend.

See how it's done in this week's video recipe from the chefs at Al.ta Cucina.

Ingredients for five portions

– 500g of broccolini (baby broccoli)

– 400g of potatoes

– 70 g of parmigiano (parmesan cheese)

– Cubed provolone cheese

– one egg

– Breadcrumbs (to coat)

-Salt and pepper to taste

 

Method:

-With a fork, crush the broccolini and combine with the boiled, crushed potatoes, grated parmigiano, egg, breadcrumbs, and salt and pepper.  Work everything together with a spoon until blended.

-Take a spoonful of the mixture and press it lightly in the center.  Add a cube of provolone and close it in the shape of a croquette/meatball.

-Roll the croquettes in the breadcrumbs and bake them at 180˚C/350˚F for 15 minutes.

Buon appetito! See more Italian video recipes in English by Al.ta Cucina on Facebook.
