I made croquettes for the first time actually the other day. I love croquettes, not super healthy but it can be so good. All is on the flavour and the texture.

My first one were quite good, not the best yet but I will make an other try very soon.

These ones were made from chicken and sausage that I brought from Corsica: Figatellu. Very delicious
