I found this recipe in a cookbook from the library. It turned out to be fast and delicious! My family really enjoyed it. I didn't make the sauce because I didn't have the red pepper or the relish. I just served it with spicy mayo on the side. It tasted good without any sauce...so don't think you have to have any but its a nice addition. This works great with the rotisserie chicken you get at the store and also would be good with leftover cooked turkey. Its something different to make after the holidays that is not a casserole. NOTE: If you just have salted saltines,just omit the salt with the egg.

Following Felina's suggestion, I also made these croquettes with the red onion marmalade. The croquettes with the sauce and red onion marmalade was amazing. Won an Iron Chef competition with these recipes! Easy and delicious!

Directions See How It's Made
- Make the sauce: Stir together in a small bowl and set aside.
- Make the croquettes: Toss together all the ingredients except crackers and egg.
- Crumble the crackers over the mixture making fine crumbs.
- Pour egg over all and toss well to combine.
- Use 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop up mixture.
- Form oval croquettes about 3" long by 3/4" high by putting mixture between palms of hands and pressing down firmly, but gently.
- Heat 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil in a 12" nonstick skillet over medium heat.
- Add croquettes and cook until golden brown on one side,about 4 minutes.
- Turn and cook until the other side turns a light brown and tops are firm, about 2 minutes.
- Press down gently with a spatula and add more oil as needed.
- Serve immediately with a dollop of sauce.
- NOTE: I crushed my crackers in a small ziplock bag before mixing them inches It seemed easier that way. I also got 8 croquettes out of this.
