Cheese Croquettes

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Yolks 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk cheese, cut in very small cubes
  • 1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • Few grains cayenne
Make a thick white sauce, using butter, flour, and milk, add yolks of eggs without first beating, and stir until well mixed; then add grated cheese. As soon as cheese melts, remove from fire, fold in cheese cubes, and season with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Spread in a shallow pan, and cool. Turn on board, cut in small squares or strips, dip in crumbs, egg and crumbs again, fry in deep fat, and drain on brown paper. Serve for a cheese course.
