What You Need

lb.  potatoes, peeled, cut into chunks
cup  PHILADELPHIA Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Spread
Tbsp.   chopped fresh parsley
tsp.  salt
 eggs, separated
cup  matzo meal
cup  oil

Make It

PLACE potatoes in 3-qt. saucepan; add enough water to cover. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 20 to 25 min. or until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes; return to saucepan. Add cream cheese; mash with hand masher or beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Cool. Add egg yolks; mix well.

BEAT egg whites in shallow dish or pie plate until frothy; set aside. Place matzo meal in separate shallow dish or pie plate. With hands lightly sprayed with cooking spray, shape potato mixture into 16 ovals, using 1/4 cup of the potato mixture for each oval (croquette). Dip in egg whites, then in matzo meal, turning over to evenly coat both sides of each croquette with the matzo meal.

HEAT oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add croquettes; cook 3 to 4 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
