1kg potatoes, skin on
200g goat’s cheese
3 egg yolks
1 amount of crushed pea recipe (following)
Sea salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
1 tbsp nutmeg
200g flour, plus extra for crumbing
Eggs for crumbing
Panko bread crumbs for crumbing

Preheat oven to 200°C.
Roast the potatoes for 1 hour.
Scoop out the flesh and pass through a moulis, and place in a kitchen aid with the paddle attachment.
Add the crushed peas, flour, cheese, seasoning and egg yolk.
Mix until just combined – do not over mix as it will become gluggy and like glue.
Roll out the croquettes to pinky finger size logs about 5cm long and 1.5cm thick. Allow to cool to set.
Prepare a crumbing station and crumb.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before use.
Deep fry at 180°C for about 3-5 minutes.

5g salt
125ml water
