A New Recipe

I have a three-ring binder of recipes that I’ve been collecting and want to try. The problem is I’ve hardly tried any! I picked a few out today that I hope to make soon. I’m not sure if I’ll get to them this week because of the convention.

Here’s one I’d like to try:

Rice Croquettes
1/2 C chopped onion
2 T butter
1 C uncooked long grain rice
2 1/4 C chicken broth
2 T chopped fresh parsley
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 C grated Parmesan cheese
1 t dried basil
1/4 t pepper
1/2 C dry bread crumbs
Cooking oil
Additional fresh parsley, optional

In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add rice; saute 3 minutes. Stir in broth and parsley; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes. Stir in egg, cheese, basil and pepper. Moisten hands with water and shape 1/4 cupfuls into logs. Roll in crumbs. In an elecric skillet, heat 1/4″ of oil to 365*. Fry croquettes a few at a time for 3-4 minutes or until crisp and golden, turning often. Drain on paper towels. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Yield: 16 croquettes
