The nostalgic old fashioned croquettes (korokke) I used to eat as a child. They have good flavor even without adding meat. Eating these croquettes calms me down somehow.
I used to love the butcher's style croquettes my mother made for me as a child. I recreated it from memory and turned it into a recipe.
The potato filling is already cooked, so all you need to do is to deep fry the croquettes until the coating is crispy. Taste the filling at Step 6, and adjust the seasoning.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
