Small Bytes – Croquettes

Written by Diana - April 28, 2012 5 Comments

This is a repeat of a conversation with my husband and inspired today’s post…

Conversation at dinner with my husband:

Me:   The croquettes are really good.

The Man:   The what?

Me:   The croquettes.

The Man:   The what?

Me:   The chicken balls.

The Man:   Oh I didn’t know what you were talking about.

According to the online dictionary:


[kroh-ket] noun –

a small cake or ball of minced meat, poultry, or fish, or of rice, potato, or other food, often coated with beaten egg and bread crumbs, and fried in deep fat.

Not to be confused with……


[kroh-key; Brit. kroh-key, -kee]-

a game played by knocking wooden balls through metal wickets with mallets.
