The same recipe for the croquettes makes absolutely perfect meatballs which you can smother in your favorite gravy and serve with sweet potatoes or whatever you like.
Prepare them as you would do for the croquettes, just take smaller amounts of the mioxtue and form them into balls with the palms of your hands. Cook them till golden brown and then serve them topped with either gravy or sauce.
