“These are very good. My step-mom used to make these in the 80's. We would dip into a mustard dressing. Honey mustard would work. The thousand island works great also. Make sure you finely chop corned beef and sauerkraut, so the croquettes hold together. They make a nice appetizer or a nice luncheon with a salad. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!”
