The absolute most perfect use of potatoes is to turn them into French Fries. I think, the next best use is in cutlets!
Vegetable Cutlet is the perfect combination of a light, crispy outside with a tasty, soft centre. Mildly seasoned mashed potato and vegetables are formed into bite-size shape, dipped in batter, coated with breadcrumbs and shallow fried to crispy perfection. The cutlets sizzle in the pan just long enough to form a golden crust, keeping the potato on the inside tender. So, you'll have a luxuriously tender interior to encase in a delicately crisp shell – a sublime combination of texture and flavor!
These crisp-tender patties are accented with caramelized onions, parmesan cheese and seasoning. Potatoes take a walk on the mild side in this subtle but flavorful dish.This delicious, family-favorite has enough flavors to be the star of any plate and will have your crowd clamoring for more.
If you weren't hungry before you read this, I bet you are now! So go on, unearth the goodness of these cutlets!
