My Tried & True Tips
Always use fresh, soft bread slices to make the potato roll. Avoid using stale bread as it might break while shaping the roll. The white bread slices are the perfect choice for this bread roll recipe.
Dip the bread slice in water only for a second or so to moisten it. Then gently squeeze it to get rid of the water but make sure not to break the bread slice.
Make sure potato filling is nicely mashed and smooth in texture else it will ooze out of the bread covering.
Potato Rolls can be either deep-fried or shallow fried.
Make sure to fry bread roll on medium to high heat so that croquettes are crisp from the outside and fully cooked from the inside.
The secret of my crunchy bread roll recipe is to keep them in the refrigerator (not the freezer) for 15 – 30 minutes before frying. This step always yields crisp potato rolls without fail.

Can I bake a potato bread roll?
Yes, the bread roll can be baked as well. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Brush the shaped potato rolls with oil, and bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the outer covering is crisp and golden in color. You can air-fry them as well at the same temperature for 7 – 8 minutes on each side.
Can I make the bread roll in advance and freeze it?
Yes, indeed. A few hours before the serving time, shape the cutlet, arrange them on a greased plate or baking tray. Cover the dish with a muslin cloth and keep it in the refrigerator until ready to fry.
Arrange the bread roll in a tray and freeze for 1 – 2 hours. Once frozen, store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Thaw at room temperature before frying.
