Homemade mussels’ croquettes

We are going to prepare a delicatessen dish, worthy of the most exquisite palates: the mussel croquettes that won’t leave anyone with indifference, despite being a very simple dish to prepare and extremely cheap, your guests won’t be able to stop until no croquettes will remain on the plate.

They are great appetizer and also as a main course, joined by a good salad or as you like it. I hope you enjoy them because they are delicious.

  3. Now let’s add the milk slowly.
  4. Mix with a spoon until everything is well cooked. (You will notice that when mixture I stops sticking to the pan).
  5. Remove from the heat and let cool the dough at least for a couple of hours, they can stay even in the fridge until the next day or freeze them and used in any moment.
