Learn today how to make German Kroketten. This is a very popular German side dish that you can order in every German restaurant. I don’t know how I should call them in English, in the USA I found potato taters but they are not the quite same as the German Kroketten. Basically they are made out of mashed potatoes that will be fried in oil. Here is a recipe for the Kroketten. Tip: Use breadcrumbs that are not spiced or salted. I know they are hard to find in US supermarkets because all breadcrumbs are spiced. The best is to collect some bread and let it become very dry, then grate it. Enjoy them with a Wiener Schnitzel! Happy Cooking!
