Chestnut Croquettes make a lovely side accompaniment to a holiday dinner, especially with turkey or goose.

Frozen chestnuts are easy to use and are nearly as good as fresh for this recipe.

2 cups hot mashed chestnuts
4 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 egg

Mix the chestnuts, butter, 2 eggs, slightly beaten, and seasonings.

Shape into croquettes (small roll shape).

Roll in crumbs, then in beaten egg, and again in crumbs.

Lightly fry in deep hot fat (375-390 degrees F) until the crumbs are brown (2 to 5 minutes).
