How to make the potato croquettes with nduja

Peel and wash the potatoes, boil them in salted water and mash them in a potato masher.

In a bowl, mix the potatoes with the pecorino, eggs, nutmeg and black pepper. Then, form some balls, crush them and put in the center of each one a piece of provola and a little of nduja.

Pass them in the flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs, then repeat the operation in order to obtain a double breading and avoid that they open in baking.

Fry in plenty of peanut oil, drain in absorbent paper, salt and serve. Enjoy!
