Ree Drummond's Potato Salad Can Also Serve As A Tasty Croquette Base
Ree Drummond's version of potato salad is anything but traditional, but what makes it truly different from others is that the leftovers make an excellent base for croquettes.
Many potato salads leave the quartered potatoes whole, but the Pioneer Woman uses a combo of mashed or riced potatoes, mayo, pickle juice, spices, and chopped hard-boiled eggs.
Potato croquettes are made by forming cold mashed potatoes into logs or balls. Once breaded, they are fried to create a golden, crispy outside and soft and creamy inside.
Drummond's potato salad already has the right consistency and seasoning for croquettes, and the well-chilled leftovers in the fridge can easily be shaped into spheres.
By conveniently turning one meal into two, you have plenty of time to prepare and add extras like bacon, onions, or garlic to customize your croquettes.
