  • 150g carrots, cut into ½cm dice
  • 50g peas
  • 75g medium oatmeal
  • Oil for shallow frying

What to do

  1. Cut the potatoes into chunks and place in a saucepan of cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until tender. Drain and allow to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the carrots and peas for 3 minutes, drain and run under cold water.
  3. Mash the potatoes, stir in the Galloway Cheddar and vegetables and season well.
  4. Divide into 8 and mould into cylinder shapes. Sprinkle the oatmeal onto a large plate and roll each croquette in it to evenly coat.
  5. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and fry the croquettes for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until golden.
  6. Serve with garlic mayonnaise.
