Healthy version Korokke (Japanese croquette)

Korokke is a popular Japanese deep-fried dish similar to croquettes. It usually consists of mashed potato, cooked minced meat and onion. The mixture is then shaped into patties, covered in breadcrumbs and deep fried.My version of baked korokke is much healthier than the conventional deep-fried korokke. The melted cheese inside the korokke will make this dish especially mouthwatering!
