Goat Cheese Croquettes with Honey and Toasted Almonds

. 220 grams soft goat cheese, roughly chopped
. 60 grams cream cheese, slightly softened
. 1 egg, whisked
. 1½ cups breadcrumbs
. 2 cups high smoke point cooking oil, such as rice bran or grapeseed
To serve
. 1½ cups wild rocket
. 1 tablespoon olive oil
. 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar
. 2 tablespoons good-quality runny honey
. ½ cup flaked almonds, lightly toasted

Put the cheeses in a small bowl and mash to a firm, smooth paste. Put in the fridge to firm up for 20 minutes.

Roll the cheese into 12 balls (just smaller than a golfball). Place on a tray lined with baking paper and chill again for half an hour.

Dip the balls in the whisked egg, then roll in the breadcrumbs. Repeat. Chill again for at least half an hour (or up to 12 hours).

Heat the oil until a small piece of bread dropped in pops up to the surface and goes brown in about 20 seconds. Fry balls for a few minutes until golden. Test with one ball first to ensure your oil temperature is correct.

Drain well on paper towels and serve on the rocket tossed with oil and vinegar. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with flaked almonds. Makes 12
