Recipe#29: Small Leftover Kibbles

I’m not sure this is the most appetizing title in the world… and yet !!! Those little leftover croquettes were delicious ! Thursday night I had decided to make panzerottis (now that I have a blender/robot I feel like trying new recipes every day), except that I really mismanaged the quantities for the filling and I had a big amount of leftovers. I don’t know how the idea came to me but I wanted to try making croquettes to eat with a green salad. Neither one nor two, here we go!


I had 2 types of garnish, the spinach-based one was much easier to handle to make croquettes. The tomato base was a bit too liquid but I give you the 2 recipes because it was still delicious!

For this recipe of croquettes you will need (to adapt according to the number of croquettes you want):

Recipe with spinach:

  • spinach
  • mozzarella
  • onions
  • garlic
  • black olives
  • salt/pepper
  • spices (I think I had put turmeric here)

Tomato-based recipe:

  • leftover tomato sauce for pizza
  • mozzarella
  • onions
  • garlic
  • black olives
  • salt/pepper
  • spices (I think I had put turmeric here)

For the breadcrumbs:

  • breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • a little bit of flour
  • olive oil


Let’s go!

  • Brown the onions and garlic in a frying pan (if you want to make both recipes reserve a part of this preparation)
  • For the spinach option: add the spinach to the preparation.
  • Then it’s quite simple you can put everything in the food processor: spinach + black olives + mozzarella, season. For the tomato preparation: put everything in the food processor: onions + garlic + black olives + mozzarella, season. The idea is to cut and mix but keep the pieces.
  • Let the preparations cool down.
  • Prepare the 3 steps for the breading: a small bowl with a flour base, a small bowl with a beaten egg, a small bowl with breadcrumbs.
  • Prepare small balls of each preparation, roll each ball in the flour, then in the egg and then in the breadcrumbs (be careful with the tomato preparation it is more difficult).
  • Put your little balls in the pan until they are golden brown.
  • Enjoy your meal!
