Well, this is unfortunate. The recipe ingredients are listed, but the method was cut off! Backing up, a croquette is a breaded and fried ball-like item. They are usually round, disc shaped or oval. The insides are generally meat and/or potato. So, it’s similar to a deep fried dumpling I suppose. Croquettes date back hundreds of years and may be founded in Jewish cuisine. They are popular worldwide and have many regional variations. They are frequently served with a sauce, either béchamel or other, based on the filling.
