Meat Croquettes

A delicious bonus of making broth at home is that you are left with a lot of roasted, melt-in-your-mouth meat. Nicely browned and moist, it is perfect for preparing mini meatballs for the kids or adults to enjoy alike.

  • 1 medium boiled potato
  • 2-3 minced garlic cloves

  4. Add a splash of water to help blend and form into croquettes.
