cromesquis

Language: French

Description: A small ball of minced (US: ground) meat which differs from a croquette in that a croquette is dipped in egg and breadcrumbs rather than batter or caul fat. They are similar to croquettes in many other respects. French cromesquis are coated in batter. Polish cromesquis are wrapped in a very fine pancake and then dipped in batter. Russian cromesquis are wrapped in caul fat. All are then deep-fried. Originates in Russia.
