Lisa 'Gayle''s StoryThese were one of my favorite treats in Holland and they have vending machines in the streets where you can get them all the time, they even had them at the amusement park!! McDonalds in Holland has a McCroquette too! there's is like breaded breading on bread but it was quite popular hehehehe. They are not hard at all give them a try. Mix and match the fillings to your liking as long as your stuffing is not to sloppy they should turn out fine.

Lisa; these look phenomenal. My family traditionally eats croquettes every Christmas Eve, along with our traditional red beet barszcz ("borcht"); this year I will make the croquettes and I will use this recipe. It looks amazing! (and easy... just hope I don't show up my mom who spends hours on croquette making, lol!)

They are very easy, AND they use up leftovers!! Since you have had Croquettes before you will have no problem getting the coating just right I am excited to find out how you like them....maybe you should have a dry run after a roast night??? But they are SUPER easy, there is no need to make such hard work out of them, if you get the flavors right the method should be easy so they can be enjoyed more often and not so hard to pass down from generation to generations.
