Potato and Bread Cutlets Recipe
- 1 pound potatoes, peeled
- 2 slices bread, cubed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
- 2 sprigs fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
step 1: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool.
step 2: Mash potatoes and bread cubes together in a large bowl. Mix in egg, salt, cayenne, jalapeno, and cilantro. Shape potato mixture into patties and coat with bread crumbs.
step 3: Heat oil in a large tall-sided skillet until almost smoking. Carefully slide cutlets into oil. Cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Remove from heat and drain. Serve warm.
