What could be better than bacon, cheese and mashed potato all wrapped into one crunchy croquette? These are the perfect entertaining snack, and will be a favourite amongst all ages!

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 30 Minutes Cook Time 15 Minutes


5 rashers streaky bacon, cooked and cut into pieces (we love Hellers)
2 cups cold mashed potato (we use Wilcox Red Jackets)
1/4 cup flour + extra for crumbing
1 egg yolk + 1 egg
1tsp minced garlic
1tbsp dried oregano
100g camembert, cut into cubes (we love Food Snob)
1-2 cups breadcrumbs
Olivado Avocado oil, for frying


  1. In a bowl, combine the bacon, mashed potato, 1/4 cup of flour, egg yolk, garlic, oregano and seasoning. Mix well.
  2. Roll the potato mixture into even sized balls, and set onto a tray. Push a camembert cube into each ball, and roll so they cheese is covered by the potato.
  3. Pane each croquette by rolling in flour, then dipping in egg and coating in breadcrumbs.
  4. Deep or shallow fry the croquettes until golden brown and crispy, and keep warm in the oven if necessary. Serve immediately.
