Our Oh-so-yummy and EZ-to-make croquettes! These are great for OAMC too. The croquettes freeze well, then just pop them in the microwave for a quick meal or snack. Does not include 3 hr chill time. Cone shape is traditional for croquettes, but I have made patty shaped ones that are just as wonderful. Try adding some chopped mushrooms too. Thanksgiving leftovers?.. Try Bird's Thanksgiving Leftover Croquettes ;)
