1 Scrub the potatoes with a brush under cold running water. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with cold water to cover. Cover the pan and bring the water to a boil. Cook over medium heat until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes, then let them cool slightly. Peel the potatoes. Put them in a large bowl and mash them with a masher or fork until smooth.
2 Separate the eggs, putting the yolks in a small bowl and setting the whites aside in a shallow dish. Spread the bread crumbs on a sheet of wax paper.
3 Stir the egg yolks, cheese, parsley, and salame into the mashed potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
4 Using about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture, form a sausage shape about 1 inch wide and 21/2 inches long. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
5 Beat the egg whites with a whisk or a fork until frothy. Dip the potato logs into the whites, then roll them in the crumbs, coating them completely. Place the logs on a wire rack and let dry 15 to 30 minutes.
6 Pour about 1/2 inch of the oil into a large heavy skillet. Heat over medium heat until a bit of the egg white sizzles when dropped in the oil. Carefully place some of the logs in the pan, leaving a little space between them. Fry them, turning occasionally with tongs, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer the browned croquettes to paper towels to drain.
7 Serve immediately or keep the croquettes warm in a low oven while frying the remainder.
