What Type of Cheese to Use for the Croquettes?

Cheese is the perfect complement to these potato croquettes and, since they are so versatile, you have the possibility to experiment with different types of cheese, whichever you like the most.

In my case, I chose Parmesan cheese for the dough because it gives the perfect balance, and on the other hand, mozzarella, to achieve a melting and very soft interior.

There are other varieties that you can use if you like them more, such as cheddar, gouda, or even blue cheese, for the braver ones who love strong flavors.

As a complement, you can also add your favorite ingredients, personalizing them to your taste. Whether you decide to add more cheese, fresh herbs, or even other types of meats, the possibilities are endless!
