Potato and Bacon Croquettes

These were part of an experiment for breakfast ideas. They are essentially gourmet hash browns, and are so delicious!

1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
2 eggs, whisked
1 cup flour
3 potatoes
3 rashers of bacon
1/2 red onion
salt and pepper
3 Tbsp cream

Boil the potatoes and mash. Put through a fine sieve to get rid of lumps. Add cream, crispy bacon pieces, diced red onion, salt and pepper and combine. Roll into cylinders, place in flour, egg and bread crumbs and fry until golden. Serve with home made lemon and garlic aioli.

Bombes de La Barceloneta

These little jewels were to die for! Essentially it was a moist meatball coated in smooth mashed potato and then fried till crispy and golden. It was topped with the most creamy mayonnaise and spicy chilli sauce. Being brought up in a world where more ingredients meant more flavour, this spanish delicacy was far from familiar. But it was also a way of cooking that I aspire to follow. To be honest, a huge bowl of these babies in front of the telly on a friday night would be glorious! But, served in small portions as they were, I walked away with meatballs on my mind and a wonderful eating experience that I so want to re-create at home in Sydney.
