Get the most out of the fall produce season! Try different varieties of root vegetables for your next side dish!
After washing the vegetables, cut the potatoes and sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes, keeping them separate.
In a small pot, bring 1-2 quarts of water to a boil. Take the sweet potato cubes and submerge them into the boiling water for 3-3.5 minutes. Note: the sweet potato is much more starchy than potatoes, so boiling them will help make them softer. But do not boil so long that they become too soft. You want them to hold their shape. After 3-3.5 minutes pour the potatoes into a colander in the sink and let the water drain off. Allow them to cool a bit.
In a large plastic gallon bag, combine all of the ingredients. Seal the bag and move everything around so it’s well coated. Allow it to marinate for at least 1 hour or store in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.
When ready to cook, heat the oven to 425 F. Spread potatoes and onion mixture out evenly onto a greased, foiled lined cookie sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring the mixture halfway through cooking.
There are two keys to turning out good potato croquettes every time. The first, a well-proportioned balance of flour, egg and potato. The second necessity is oil heated sufficiently for deep frying them. The recipe given here ended the diplomatickitchen’s search for one that would turn out excellent croquettes on a regular basis.
This dish is perfect for BBQ season. Because it can be served hot or at room temperature, it travels well.
This recipe serves 4 to 6.
By the way, I like to serve these for the holidays as well!
