sprouts and cook for a few minutes. In the meantime, bring a large
pan of water to the boil with two tablespoons vinegar; turn the heat
very low. Break 4 eggs one by one in a big spoon and put this
carefully in the water; poach the eggs for 3 minutes. Take the bean
sprouts out of the sauce; break the remaining 3 eggs and use only
the yolks. Add some tablespoons of sauce to the yolks, stir and pour

the other and egg white in the third. Roll each croquette
through flour, then through egg white and finally through
bread crumbs. Put them back into the fridge for 1 hour. Deep
