Here is a recipe for pork croquettes that I have been meaning to post for a while. These pork croquettes make tasty appetizers. You can bake them or shallow fry them in a pan. I decided to bake them since that would be a healthier option.

Ingredients: (makes about 14 pieces)

  • 3 small potatoes
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/8 cup flour
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • tonkatsu sauce


  1. Boil potatoes for 20-30 minutes until they are soft inside. Check by inserting a fork or knife through the potato.
  2. Remove the skin and mash the potatoes in a large bowl.
  3. Heat butter in a frying pan. Add onions and cook for a few minutes until slightly brown.
  4. Add ground pork and cook over medium heat.
  5. Mix the cooked pork with the mashed potatoes, and some salt and pepper.
  6. Form the mixture into balls and flatten slightly.
  7. Sprinkle flour on both sides of each ball. Dip the ball into the beaten egg. Cover with Panko crumbs and set aside.
  8. Frying: Heat oil to 375F and fry until golden brown (about 2 minutes on each side). Remove the ball from the pan. Place balls over paper towels to remove excess oil.
    Baking: Heat oven to 400F and bake until golden brown (about 15-20 minutes)
  9. Serve with tonkatsu sauce or your choice of sauce.

Here are a few pieces.

There’s more in the oven.
