Dutch Potato Krokets – Aardappel Kroketten

Thank you for sharing!

Last Updated on November 13, 2019 by Chef Mireille

Potato Kroket, Aardappel KrokettenKroketten and Bitterballen are two of the most popular street foods in the Netherlands. They are sold out of street side kiosks all throughout the narrow streets of Amsterdam. They are both basically the same thing, except that the bitterballen are shaped into balls while kroketten are shaped into oblong shapes. I have already presented a mixed vegetable bitterballen here. Now it’s ready to present a more classic Vegetarian version. Although meat fillings are the most popular, vegetarian versions do exist, usually potato. These krokets are rolled twice in breadcrumbs, making them super crispy on the outside.

As promised, today I am sharing with you some sights of Amsterdam. You can imagine yourself strolling around Amsterdam biting into these warm krokets. Amsterdam is a great city to visit. Take a canal ferry, visit the famous hideout of Anne Frank or visit the museum of Van Gogh & Rembrandt.

    Last week I saw a movie which was shot in Amsterdam and looking at your photos, I remember it. These potato krokets have a nice crispy crust and soft insides. Looks so heavenly..

    Mir, you said these krokets are rolled twice in breadcrumbs. Did I miss a step? I see you rolled it once in egg and then in breadcrumbs. Regardless, krokets look very crispy.
