Are croquettes really Mexican? I always thought they were French, just by the spelling I guess I had assumed it was French. At any rate, all of these recipes look fantastic, and Ican't wait to try them out. I'm not sure if I'll be trying any of these out for Thanksgiving, but definitely sometime afterwards!

Delicious! Textured soy is very used in these days since it can really replace meat and other ingredients while preparing amazing and healthy dishes, so people should consider eating more soy instead of animal meat, I find the last recipe absolutely delicious and perfect for everybody, I think that you can even disguise it as meat and surprise your guest later.
