I started with a fritter in mind and out of that came several variations of what I’m going to call croquettes. In this Apple Croquettes with Gouda and Sausage Recipe, I brought together my favorite Fall flavors again. Hey, I like what I like! And apples and gouda are kind of a combo of the gods, right? And, these little guys would be delicious with my Apple, Squash and Sausage Chili Recipe. The croquettes I made with sausage and fire roasted spiced corn would be awesome with them, too.
I have been so inspired by my Cake Pop Maker that I can’t stop making balls! They are everywhere – in tuperware, in the freezer, in the kid’s lunch. They are so quick to make (ten minutes, literally) and easy and the cleanup is simple. It’s healthier – there’s no oil! I’ve made croquettes out of almost all my leftovers and I’m not gonna stop. Do you have a Cake Pop Maker? I’m not one to get finicky about my kitchen gadgets – I don’t have every tool ever made. To be honest, there was a long time there that I didn’t know how to use a can opener. I still do it wrong most of the time.
But, getting the Cake Pop Maker has changed my life! Not only was it instrumental in the making of 100+ Pokemon and Golden Snitch Cake Pops for my sister-in-law’s wedding, but it has recently revolutionized breakfast in our house. I’ve made pancake balls with sausage, blueberry pancake balls, apple cinnamon balls, ones with lentils, chickpeas… There are so many options. And you can freeze them and pop them in the toaster oven. Between homemade frozen microwavable breakfast burritos and these croquettes – breakfast is made. Right on time to dash out the door and into the day.
