Reuben Croquettes with Swiss Cheese Recipe
  • Combine all ingredients (except oil, cheese and dressing) in a mixing bowl.
  • Cover and chill the batter for at least 15 minutes but can be left overnight if needed.
  • Heat oil in a deep fryer or skillet to 350°.
  • Use tablespoons or a small scoop to measure batter and form into balls.
  • May want to flour your hands as the batter is sticky.
  • Stuff a cheese cube into the center of the batter ball, make sure it is completely enclosed.
  • Fry in oil in batches, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Let it get nice and golden brown so the inside cooks and the cheese melts a little.
  • Remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain.
  • Serve with dressing for dipping.
