In a large mixing bowl, combine cold mashed potatoes, shredded mozzarella cheese, fresh parsley, cooked diced bacon, and Parmesan cheese. Season with 1 tsp garlic, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly until well incorporated.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out enough mashed potatoes and shape them into croquettes or golf ball size. Freeze for an hour or two to help them hold their shape while frying.
After freezing, beat three eggs and prepare 3 mixing bowls for the beaten eggs, flour, and breadcrumbs. Cover each croquette with flour, egg, and breadcrumbs respectively.
In a pan, add vegetable oil that is at least a couple of inches deep and heat for frying.
Fry the croquettes in batches for 4-5 mins at a time. Flip or rollover until it all turns golden brown.
Cool in a towel-lined bowl and prepare a tomato sauce or the Jbros tomato sauce.
Serve while fresh and hot. Enjoy!
