As lamb mince is always more expensive it's a good idea to try & make it go further.
These croquettes are filling & tasty, I've gone for Rosemary & Garlic here but you can add whatever flavours you like.
Serves 4 (makes 8 croquettes) Approx 1.20 per person
Prep/Chilling time 30 minutes Cooking time 25 minutes
500g lamb mince
400g cold mashed potato
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder or 1 crushed clove
salt & pepper
4 tbsp dried golden breadcrumbs
1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water
3 tbsp plain flour
Place the mince, potato & seasoning into a large mixing bowl.
Mix everything together with your hands then divide the mixture into 8 equal portions.
Shape each portion into a fat sausage shape.
Dip first into the flour, then the egg & finally roll the croquette in the breadcrumbs making sure they are coated well.
Place them on to a baking tray & into the fridge for about 20 minutes to chill & firm up.
Pre-heat the oven to 180Fan/200C/Gas 6
Remove the croquettes from the fridge & cook in the oven for 25 minutes.
Serve with your choice of veggies.
