Cheese croquettes are a very common meze, and are found in most tavernas in Greece - especially in the islands, like Rhodes, where I am from! Homemade cheese croquettes are just amazing, though - they’re well worth making at home and not just saving until you’re going out to eat.

In Greek they are called ‘tirokeftedes’. These little mouthfuls have a crunchy skin, with a mouthful of gooey, savoury, warm cheese inside. They are perfect as an appetiser with a drink, or as a selection of meze for a bigger meal. Homemade cheese croquettes are just amazing, though, and if you were wondering how to make cheese croquettes - don’t worry, you’ll find this recipe really isn’t tough, and is well worth a go!

Cheese Croquettes

This is a very easy Greek meze that you can prepare in advance and store for up to 2-3 months! Prepare the cheese croquettes mixture, roll them into small balls and freeze them. When you need them, just take them out of the freezer for 10 minutes to reach room temperature and pop them in the hot oil.

These can also be done in the oven! Just place them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and bake them at 200º C for 20 minutes or until they’re golden brown.
