Vegetable oil for frying
Salt and Pepper
The sandwich with Croquettes (U’ Pane chi Crocchè, or Pane e Cazzilli!), is part of the most classic and oldest examples of street food in the Sicilian town of Palermo. Cheap and Tasty, you can easily find one of the many “Panellari” (Sicilian word for “Panelle Maker”, that commonly sell Panelle and Crocchè sandwiches) wherever in town, almost in every corner of the city center.
Of course is quite common to have croquette as a starter on their own, without any bread – Is really up to you if you feel like having a full meal, or just some appetizers!
Boil the potatoes (don’t peel them) in salted water
Let them rest, as they need to be cold (you can even put them in the fridge to speed up things).
Peel the potatoes and mash them until the mixture has no lumps – add a pinch of salt and pepper, and the crushed parsley. Keep mixing!
Now, sprinkle your hands with some olive oil, grab a small portion of the mixture, and give it the shapes of a croquette. Repeat until all the mixture is gone!
Allow to cool (you can put them in the fridge!).
Fry the croquette (possibly in the fryer, or in a deep pot) in hot oil. When the color is perfectly gold, take them off the oil and put them on kitchen paper.
Cut the sandwiches and put 3-4 Croquettes in it, sprinkle with some fresh Lemon and Enjoy!
