Cheesy Croquettes

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by ImPat

From Recipe + - have altered slightly to omit the parmesan cheese and using all cheddar cheese and not the tasty cheese they suggested (original recipe is 1 cup tasty cheese and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, both grated). Have included chill time in cook time. I couldn't see why these could not be made ahead to the point just before cooking (keep covered in the fridge).

Very good recipe, Pat. I was a bit confused by the instructions, but I think I figured it out. I made them by adding the breadcrumbs to the 3/4 c cheese in Step #4. I think that is correct. Anyway, they turned out quite tasty and I plan to make them again. Served with ham steaks. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR).
