Chef Chuck's Potato Sausage Croquettes

Crocchette di Patate e Salsiccia

Potato and sausage croquettes are tasty appetizers. The parmigiano cheese made the potatoes so creamy and buttery. A touch of sage with Italian sausage is a pleasant additive. Crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside.

  1. Hi Joe, You are right they are! I also made a potato pie with the remaining goods!

  2. I am definitely making these. After all, the spinach ricotta rounds I make from you have become one of my favs! And I just love sausage and potato together. It screams Tuscan to me.
