READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe is delicious. i made it two days ago, followed the directions to a t, and didn't have a problem with moistness or shape retention. It could have had a bit more flavor, but over all it was amazing. I'm actually making it again...

These are a great vegetarian meal. I can't get them to stay in balls like that picture though they always flatten out when I cook them.

I had these and some of the barbecue pulled chicken left over one night and made burritos with them and it was fantastic!

The taste was wonderful, but I am confused. Mine were definitely not dry and I did seed my tomatoes. They were not firm enough. Kinda like forming refried beans into balls and heating them. Shouldn't croquettes be breadier?

I made it for my fiance and I last night and it was great, normally we don't have vegetarian dinners, but both of us really enjoyed it and had it for lunch the next day as leftovers.

These were very good and as someone else mentioned, no complaints (just accolades!)from my "no meat is not a meal" husband! One thing is that when breading I ran out of breadcrumbs so I think you need more than 1/3 cup. I'd rather throw some out than run out. And I didn't find these either too moist or dry (and the corn didn't dry out) but I seeded my tomatoes.

This was delicious!!! I added in some onions as well and the overall flavor and consistency was fantastic. I baked them in the toaster oven and they came out just fine. The first few that I took off the baking tray lost their round croquette shape, but once they sat a few minutes they were able to maintain their shape.
