Six Cheese Croquettes Recipe

Ingredients

For the Croquettes

  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • 1 cup grated Gruyère cheese
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (Panko or regular)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Prepare the Cheese Mixture:
    1. In a large bowl, combine all six cheeses. Mix well.
    2. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg (if using). Mix thoroughly.
  2. Shape the Croquettes:
    1. Take about 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture and shape it into a small log or ball. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
    2. Place the croquettes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bread the Croquettes:
    1. Place the flour in one shallow bowl, beaten eggs in another, and bread crumbs in a third bowl.
    2. Dredge each cheese croquette in flour, dip in beaten egg, and coat with bread crumbs. Ensure they are fully coated.
    3. Place the breaded croquettes back on the baking sheet.
  4. Fry the Croquettes:
    1. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large skillet to 350°F (175°C).
    2. Fry the croquettes in batches, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
    3. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  5. Prepare the Dipping Sauce:
    1. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
    2. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Serving Suggestions

  1. Plating
    • Serve the croquettes on a platter with the dipping sauce in the center.
    • Garnish with fresh herbs such as parsley or chives for a touch of color and freshness.
  2. Accompaniments
    • Pair with a fresh green salad dressed with a light vinaigrette to balance the richness of the croquettes.
    • Serve with a side of marinara sauce or aioli for additional dipping options.
  3. Beverage Pairing
    • A crisp white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or a sparkling wine can complement the cheesy flavors well.
    • For a non-alcoholic option, try a sparkling water with a slice of lemon or lime.
