Left Overs – try Croquettes

‘Tis the Season to have left overs. Here’s one way to deal with left over meaty stuff. Can be this meat or that meat – fish – whatever. First, chop it up finely. Then chop up an onion finely. Fry the onion in a bit of butter and add some herbs – I went for Oregano and Parsley. Use a low heat – it doesn’t take much to soften your onion. Add your chopped up meat, a tablespoon of mustard, a couple of tablespoons of flour and about the same amount of milk. Remove from the heat. Beat an egg and add some grated sharp cheese. Mix in the egg and cheese. Remove from the pan and put it in the freezer while you pour yourself a well earned Shiraz. After about 15 minutes in the freezer, you can work the mix into shapes. Then heat a bit more butter and some oil and fry. Serve with more Shiraz, some crusty bread and a salad. The Responsible Adult was happy while I finished off the rest of the Christmas Prawns.
