Tuna Croquettes

Here's another found recipe that's featured in my book HANDWRITTEN RECIPES.

This one is for a very American version of Tuna Croquettes:

35 Ritz crackers (1 stack pack), crushed
1 (7-ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked
¼ cup milk
½ teaspoon basil
⅛ teaspoon pepper
1 egg, beaten
American cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes

Mix together all ingredients except cheese, reserving some cracker crumbs, and chill. Shape each croquette around a cube of cheese. Roll in remaining cracker crumbs. Sauté in ½ inch of hot fat until well browned. Makes 6 to 8 croquettes.

Found in Gateway to the Great Books, vol. 10: Philosophical Essays edited by Robert M. Hutchins and Mortimer J. Adler. Published by Encyclopedia Britannica, 1963.
