Croquettes – is a dish that can be served as an appetizer or a snack or as a main course with side dishes. If you decide to make croquettes as an appetizer, there is an option to add a piece of cheese in the middle of each croquette. Croquettes do not have to be round; you make them in the form of small sausages. They can be served as a snack with ketchup or any other sauce. To prepare croquettes, you’ll need:
- Ground chicken – 500 g
- 1 onion
- Egg whites – 2
- Fresh parsley or dill
- Breadcrumbs or any other breading
- Spices, salt
- Vegetable oil
- Cheese – 50 grams
- Chop the greens, and if you do not have the ground meat ready, now id the time to grind the chicken in the meat grinder along with the onions. Beat the egg whites well with the mixer until they are foamy. Add the herbs to the meat, put to the same spices, salt, pepper and mix thoroughly. Then add the egg whites and mix thoroughly again.
- Next, wet your hands in the water and begin to form balls or small sausages out of ground meat. When the croquettes are ready, roll them in bread crumbs or any (any other breading is fine too) and fry over medium heat. The time for frying is about 3-4 minutes. You have to constantly keep them turning in oil so they don’t get burned. If you decide to make the croquettes with cheese, then for the round croquettes, cut the cheese in cubes, and for the oval ones – in rectangles. Make the croquettes in the following manner: roll the ground chicken into a pancake, put the cheese in the middle and them roll it back into a ball.
