I used to think that the Spanish croquettes is the same as our burgers, they were not. Croquettes is a lifesaver for Thrifty Housewives. If your fridge is stored the remains of food that has not deteriorated, but has lost form, and throw them as it is a pity, you will help the croquettes. For their preparation suitable all:the remains of cooked chicken, scraps of ham, pork, fried fish, dried cheese. You can make vegetable croquettes with red pepper, spinach, you can combine foods to create new tastes. The basis of croquet - a thick Bechamel sauce, and all of the above fillers that give the finished product taste. Another positive point: they can be frozen. I made 3 kinds of croquet:with chicken and mushrooms, with pork and red pepper with salt cod bacalao. Made them 3 days before the housewarming, froze, then gave guests as a hot snack. From croquet is not gone, although the lack of snacks was not. So, prepare the croquettes...
