Keyword: dinner, Finger Food, Food, lunch, Recipe


  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1/3 to 1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Fresh Take cheese and breadcrumb kit do not eat raw
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 C flour
  • 1/2 to 1 C milk
  • salt pepper, and onion powder to taste
  • Oil for frying


  • Start by browning your ground beef with salt, pepper, and onion powder while you boil your potatoes.
  • Remove meat from heat and add your drained potatoes to your pan with your beef and mash.
  • Add about 1/4 to 1/2 C milk and stir. Taste and add more seasoning if needed.
  • Stir in Cheese from the Kraft Meal Kit.
  • Roll into balls or patties and place on a cookie sheet.
  • I like to pop them in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight but I’ve also continued to the next step without refrigerating. They are easier to manage if they have some time in the fridge.
  • Set up a breading station. Flour in one pan/plate, 1 egg beat with 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk in another, and then your bag of Kraft Fresh Take breadcrumbs. Roll the croquettes first in flour, then in the egg mixture and then toss in the bag and set on a dry cookie sheet.
  • Once all your pieces are breaded and your oil is hot, fry until golden brown.
  • Remove and allow to cool on a paper towel.
