My mom always made potato croquettes, and I loved them! She said she just mixed some flour and egg in with leftover mashed potatoes, rolled them in more flour, shaped them like a potato and fried them in the skillet.

I have never had mine turn out like hers, so obviously I missed something. Maybe I didn't get the grease hot enough.

I always add a little chives to mine (along with the egg and flour) and fry them up in bacon grease.

I have a different technique for making french fries. Common practice is to double fry the french fries. I have found (through experimentation) that if you parboil the french fries until they are cooked almost through, then deep fry them, they are very fluffy and light, with a wonderfully crispy outside, and a great potato flavor inside. I have also gotten great results by microwaving whole potatoes until done, then cutting into fries and deep frying them. In both instances, the potatoe is already cooked and just the very outer "skin" is crisped by the hot oil. The steam from the frying potatoes keeps the oil from penetrating any deeper, and you don't have to worry about overcooking the potato surface to get the inside all the way cooked through.

Granted, these methods take more work, but if you really love gourmet french fries, with great potato flavor, give these methods a try. I believe you will be impressed with the results.

Weed: I've got to try that. My fries always come out "limp", no matter if I "double fry" them or not.

Croquettes:

I stuff them with a cheddar stick, form the mashed potato mixture around them, roll them in fine bread crumbs (mixed with Parmesan, if you wish), deep fry at 375 till brown, then bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
