Accompany this delicious appetizer with a green salad. You can also add some cooked chicken or sautéed bacon.
1 ½ kilo potatoes
1 cup feta cheese broken into small chunks
2-3 tablespoons flour
1 small bunch of fresh oregano, finely chopped or 2 teaspoons dried oregano
A pinch of nutmeg
Oil for frying
Salt – pepper
Boil the potatoes in their skins in plenty of salted water. Drain and while they are still warm, peel and mash them in a large bowl with a fork.
Add to the bowl the remaining ingredients and mix well, preferably with your hands. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for 15 minutes and then shape into croquettes.
Heat plenty of olive oil in a saucepan. Once hot, fry the croquettes on both sides until golden. Be careful not to burn them.
Drain the croquettes on absorbent paper and serve on a platter.
