I’m looking to make the recipe Squash Croquettes and in the picture I see little green specks, an herb but I don’t see it in the ingredients can you tell me what it is.

I revised this recipe by adding more flour and shredded cheddar cheese. I spooned them into the skillet with a tablespoon and teaspoon to get them to stick together to form into a patty. They were delicious. I use this same recipe for Salmon croquettes with the exception of the cheese.

I use a large can of salmon. You can also use two small cans of tuna. Leave the juice of the salmon in the mixture. I continue to add enough flour until they will drop from the tablespoon into the skillet.

Try ranch dressing for a dipping sauce. If you precook the squash, it will be mushy and you will not be able to cook them as a patty. I had to add more flour to mine to get it to hold together.

I am planning on using this recipe for dinner tonight and I, too, wanted to bake them. I liked your comment about trying to bake a pancake…which is do-able. So I plan on making a thin “casserole” out of it. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
