Review + Giveaway: D’Orsogna Chorizo and Potato Croquettes

This dish is a real winner, they are perfect as well for dinner, served with a cold salad and by making a larger batch you can also enjoy them for lunch the next day. Whether they are served hot or cold these little gems have the perfect balance of flavour. The D’Orsogna Spicy Chorizo Salami gives them a bit of a kick, but you could easily swap this for the D’Orsogna Mild Salami for younger children even though my two didn’t seem to mind the flavour at all. They were more worried about the ‘green stuff’ parsley that they could see. Next time my parsley chopping skills will be improved to make the pieces smaller so the kids don’t see them.

This recipe made a good serving of about 24 Croquettes

These could easily be sent to school with a sweet dipping sauce. I dare say you won’t see these coming back home in the lunchbox.


  • 100g D’Orsogna Deli Fresh Spicy Chorizo Salami, diced
  • 2 cups Mashed Potato, cold
