Farmhouse Cheese Croquettes

Serves 3-6

1 Young to medium ripe mould-ripened cheese for example St. Killian
40g Butter

1/2 Pint milk
Salt, Pepper and other spices to taste
1 Egg yolk
1 beaten egg white
White bread crumbs

Melt the butter and add flour then milk, stir until boiling, season well. While allowing to cool, scrape the rind from the cheese, grate, or if too soft, simply work it into the sauce and finally the yolk. Turn out on to a floured board. Shape into walnut size pieces. Dip into the beaten egg and roll in bread crumbs. Deep fry until golden brown.
