Rice croquette recipe
Rice croquettes are a dainty at their best with creamed chicken or veal.
Wash and boil one cup of rice, salt and drain. Beat with a fork or egg beater until even and smooth. Moisten with either milk, broth or tomato sauce. Just before taking from the fire, add the beaten yolks of two eggs and nutmeg and white pepper to taste. Then add two tablespoonfuls of butter. Stir thoroughly so that the eggs will thicken the mixture. Set over the fire and stir through it two tablespoonfuls of grated cheese. When the rice begins to thicken, cool and finish as in other croquettes.
