Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Then follow our 3 simple steps:
  • Cook and stir onions, 1/4 cup flavoring and crushed red pepper in skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat 10 min. or until onions are crisp-tender. Set aside.
  • Combine meat, 1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheese and potatoes in large bowl. Add onion mixture; mix well. Cool completely. Shape into 15 (3-inch) sausage-shaped croquettes (or into 12 croquettes for tuna mixture). Dip, 1 at a time, in beaten egg then in cracker crumbs, turning to evenly coat both sides of each croquette.
  • Heat oil in large saucepan to 375°F. Add croquettes, in batches; cook 3 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

Special Extra

This is a great way to use leftover cooked meat.

Food Facts

Popular in Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Carribean, croquettes are typically served as part of either a lunch or dinner meal.

Fun Idea

To serve as appetizers, shape into smaller croquettes before frying.

Cooking Know-How

Using cold, leftover mashed potatoes makes it easier to shape the croquettes.

    These were very good. I made fresh mashed potatoes for them, but this would be a great recipe to use up some leftovers. I sauteed onions and celery, added 2 large cans of white meat chicken, and 1 cup of shredded longhorn cheese, salt and pepper. Really this recipe is limited only by your imagination and what you have in the pantry, anything goes.

    My 20 month old daughter try the tuna croquettes and she love them (they are eassry to eat). Is a good way to introduce tuna to little ones.
