A croquette recipe

This is what I had for dinner tonight:

A croquette recipe

-One cup slices button mushrooms
-A quarter cup finely minced green onions
-A quarter cup broccoli chopped coarsely
-A splash of olive oil
-Two cups cooked rice
-A quarter cup grated mozzarella cheese
-A few large spoonfuls of Neufchâtel cheese
-Three eggs
-Flavored breadcrumbs or plain breadcrumbs mixed with salt, white pepper, garlic powder, and oregano
-Oil sufficient for deep frying

Sauté the mushrooms, green onions, and broccoli in the olive oil until the mushrooms have released some of their liquid and the broccoli has grown soft. While still warm, stir the mixture into the rice and add the mozzarella cheese. Blend until the cheese has been incorporated into the mixture and the whole of it is quite sticky.

Let this sit until cool. Just before you are ready to fry, add the Neufchâtel cheese. Whisk the eggs until whites and yolks are blended. Form the rice mixture into cohesive balls, dip in the eggs, and coat with a goodly layer of bread crumbs. Fry until dark brown and eat while still hot.

They turned out yummy!
