Cheesy Potato Croquettes

NEVER be fooled by what you see on the outside, because on the inside it’s often a different story.Anonymous.

This recipe is being presented with the guarantee that kids of all ages will adore them(Even if the kid is 50 years old or…..1oo…or older). Really crispy on the outside while still being thick,gooey and cheesy on the inside. This can be served as an appetizer or as a dish on its own(if you’re like me and love crispy-cheesy stuff).
