Croquets of Meat, or Fish

Thumbnail of Croquets of Meat, or Fish recipe

Either chop neatly, or else cut up into very small squares, poultry, game, beef, mutton, lamb, veal, or any kind of firm fish left from a previous day's dinner.

If the croquets are to be made of any kind of meat, tongue, ham, mushrooms, or truffles may be added; put whatever is intended to bo used for the rissoles into a sautapan with a small proportion of white sauce, three yolks of eggs, nutmeg, pepper and salt, and a pinch of chopped chives or shalot; stir this over the fire for a few minutes to set the eggs in the croquet moat; and then spread it out an inch thick upon a plate, and set it to get cold and firm in a cool place; it must next be divided into parts resembling large walnuts, rolled in bread-crumbs to enable you to shape it in the form of corks, pears, or balls; again dipped in beaten egg; rolled smooth in bread-crumbs; placed in a wire frying basket, and fried in hot frying fat of a light colour, and dished on a napkin with fried parsley.
