  • 1kg Floury potatoes

  • 40g Parma Ham, chopped

  • 70g grated cheese

  • Nutmeg

  • 100g -120g Mozzarella

  • 50g - 60g Parma Ham

  • 2 Eggs

  • Flour

  • Breadcrumbs

  1. Wash the potatoes and put them in a pot filled with water, then bring to the boil.

  2. Drain, peel and pass through a ricer. Add the Parma Ham, cheese, nutmeg, egg yolks, salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes. Mix the ingredients well and allow the mixture to rest for 30 minutes.

  3. With greased hands, form the croquettes by making a hole in the centre and putting a piece of Mozzarella and a bit of Parma Ham inside.
