    Could they possibly be good? That is, if they didn’t look so bizarre! 😉 It’s a meat torpedo! hee!

      Ha ha! Or a meat bullet!

    I’ve always assumed these must be almost excruciatingly dry, although, they ARE on my list of things I must try someday!

      Actually, Miss RM, I find them to be incredibly moist inside. Almost too much. Not my favorite texture, although they usually taste good!

        Huh! I suppose I get this impression because I’ve only ever seen them on vintage recipe cards. That’s always a disillusioning way to view food!

    Chicken croquettes are SO delicious! I don’t recommend croquettes with tomato sauce, though. I’ve usually had them with a.. sort of a glazed gravy over top. They’re crisp on the outside and nice and creamy on the inside!

      Yes, NO tomato sauce!

    I love making croquettes. It’s a great way to “fancy up” left overs. I’ve made them with ham, chicken, and duck. The duck croquettes are by far my favorite. I have to agree with Maria though, they usually taste better with gravy. I like a nice giblet gravy.

      Sounds yummy, Dave! I also prefer them with gravy rather than tomato sauce.
