Family Weekend Treat: Bacon and Beans Croquettes

weekend recipe treat 2

I took this recipe off a little recipe pad that went for a freebie with the magazines I bought some months ago. I’ve been meaning to try it out but only had the chance this weekend. Well, not bad because I thought it could make a perfect family weekend treat.

Here we go for the main ingredients:

¾ kilo potato
6 tbsp. cream
2 tbsp. butter
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground white pepper
½ cup cooked bacon, coarsely chopped (You may also use sliced ham)
1 Can Pork and beans (165 g)

For the coating:
¾ cup all-purpose flour
3 pcs egg white
1 cup Japanese breadcrumbs
Cooking oil for deep frying

For the sauce:
½ cup mayonnaise
½ tsp. mustard
1/8 tsp. liquid seasoning
1 tsp. garlic, finely chopped


weekend recipe treat

Boil peeled potatoes until cooked. While still hot, mash potatoes while putting cream, butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Once mashed, add bacon and pork and beans. Form into 2-inch logs or croquettes. Dredge in all-purpose flour, dip in egg whites and coat with breadcrumbs.

Deep fry until golden crisp!

For the sauce, simply mix all ingredients together.

There you go… a perfect healthy snack for the whole family!
