Abbey Cheese Croquettes With Pear Syrup (Belgium)
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
8 ingredients
2-4 servings
I used this recipe in week 26 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook on meal from every nation on Earth, and Belgium is my 26th stop. I never use any recipe for my blog that I'm not reasonably sure is from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. This appetizer uses Belgian Abbey cheese and homemade pear syrup; but you could really use any soft cheese if you aren't worried about authenticity, and you could also use a store-bought pear syrup.
