chunky corned beef croquettes


  • 12oz can Hereford Chunky Corned Beef
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ Cup fine breadcrumbs
  • 1 Cup flour
  • 4 Cups mashed potato
  • 12oz can Hereford Chunky Corned Beef
  • 1 Cup frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
  • 1/2 Cup cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat deep fryer, or oil in a deep pan for frying on the stove top, to 350F.
  2. Place egg in a bowl and whisk.
  3. In another bowl, place breadcrumbs.
  4. In another new bowl, place flour.
  5. In the palm of your hand, place a 2TBL scoop of mashed potatoes. Make an indent in the potatoes and start to form your mashed potato scoop into a small bowl shape.
  6. Place 1 tsp of cheese, 1 tsp of Hereford Chunky Corned Beef, and 1 small scoop of vegetables inside your “potato bowl”.
  7. Gently form the excess potato over the filling to make a small ball shape. Continue this process with the rest of the potato, corned beef vegetables, and cheese.
  8. Gently roll each potato ball in flour first, then egg, and then breadcrumbs.
  9. Working in small batches, carefully place the coated croquette in the hot oil. Fry until golden in color.
  10. Remove from oil to a towel lined try to cool before serving.

This were a hit in my family. I sprayed them lightly with olive oil cooking spray and used my air fryer to cook them
