Tomato Croquettes

Stew together for 20 minutes ½ a can of tomatoes, 1 tablespoonful of chopped onion, 1 sprig of parsley, ½ a bay leaf, 4 cloves and enough salt and pepper to season highly. Rub through a sieve. In a clean saucepan melt together 2 tablespoonfuls of butter and 5 tablespoonfuls of flour. Add 2 cupfuls of the strained tomato and stir and cook for ten minutes. Take from the fire and set aside until cold. Flour the hands and carefully mould into small croquettes. Dip each into slightly beaten egg and roll in fine bread crumbs. Let stand for 20 minutes, then repeat the dipping and rolling in crumbs. Fry at once in very hot fat and drain on unglazed paper.—"Table Talk," Phila.
