Potato Croquettes Anyone?

Ahhh. Potatoes. Love love love.

Have we not all ended up with left over mashed potatoes? I took a page from my restaurant days and today made potato croquettes. Fancy, yes? Well, actually simple.
Mashed potato, shredded cheddar cheese (1 cup or so, depending on how much potato you have), salt and pepper, an egg, a bit of (gluten free) flour, an oven.
Thats it.

Combine above ingredients.
Place in a large plastic ziploc (or piping) bag.
Cut one corner off with sharp scissors.
Pipe onto parchment paper on baking sheet. (can omit parchment paper if you don't have any, but it does ensure easy removal, no sticking).
Bake at 425* in oven for about 15 minutes, then flip to brown on other side another 5-10 minutes.
That is it.
Serve with anything. Or nothing.
If you want these to look really fancy, use a piping bag attachment and do not flip. Spray with olive oil ( I use my re-fillable "Misto"), and remove from oven when golden brown.
