Potato logs

This recipe for potato logs (or potato croquettes) is not mine, but has become a firm favourite after a family friend has made it for is on several occasions.

It’s a good accompaniment to any dish, and is more interesting than plain boiled potatoes.

Make up about 4 cups mashed potato: mash peeled, boiled potatoes with low fat spread and a dash of skimmed milk, to a smooth but firm consistency. Leave to cool.
Mix with 1/2 cup finely chopped onion and an egg. Add seasoning to taste.
Form in to logs, patties or balls as you prefer. Put on a tray and leave to chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Crush 1 cup corn flakes (you may want to put them through a blender to get them really fine). Roll the chilled logs in the crumbs.
Place the logs on a greased baking tray, well spaced out. Cook at 200 degrees Centigrade for at least 30 minutes, until the logs are crispy and golden.
Serve immediately!
