Italian Cheesy Potato Croquettes… a rustic delicacy that makes your mouth water just by saying it. In my San Gimignano every Thursday of every week there is a village market where clothes meet pans, cheeses meet fish and croquettes meet porchetta. Not to mention the huge counters of fruit and vegetables! And as tradition would have it, every Thursday is a good habit with my grandmother, ever since I was little, to go to the market to do the shopping for the week. With little money you can buy zero km products that are good for the body and the earth.
On this occasion my small village is populated with people but above all, with perfume. It dominates the streets, the alleys, the darkest corners and all the squares the scent of croquettes. Those so inviting, crispy but soft potato croquettes know how to conquer the hearts of all, or at least mine.
For me, the market is above all a time when I let myself be inebriated by the scents of the most delicious foods, not to mention the sandwich with porchetta… mamma mia I’m so hungry just thinking about it!
In any case, today I wanted to bring you back in a simple article all my childhood and one of my favorite recipes, but especially my mom: she was definitely crazy about Italian Cheesy Potato Croquettes!!!
