They have a little bit of a crisp, very buttery and creamy. The scallions are a must because they give them such great flavor. I am sure you could probably substitute maybe some minced garlic if you like. Yes, they are sinfully delicious, but they are little so they can’t do much damage. Feel free to eat 5 or 6. Really, they are so little, how can it hurt?
Pierce potatoes with fork, sprinkle with salt, wrap in damp paper towel and microwave for 15 minutes. Potatoes should be firm. Set aside and let cool till they can be handled, then slice.
Place 1/2 Tbsp pats of butter in each mold of the muffin/cupcake pan, then a slice of potatoes, a pinch of salt and pepper, then cheese and scallions. Repeat layers: potato, salt & pepper, cheese, scallions. (I only did 2 layers, but I suggest going up to 3.) Top each mold with another pat of butter and drizzle each with 1 tsp of half-and-half.
Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes, until cheese is melted and potatoes are brown.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
This is a healthier version of the croquettes you know and love. Using leftover mashed potatoes they go together in a snap.
Serve Baked Potato Croquettes as an appetizer or as a side dish. Or they can even be a complete meal when served on a bed of Swiss chard, with a drizzle of Romesco sauce and a topping of crispy prosciutto!
