Crispy Egg, Onion, and Apple Croquettes from The Galley Gourmet

I have made these tasty little "apps" (as we like to call our appetizers) several times.  The first time they were a total flop.  They were good, but I knew even before I fried them that there was not enough binder to keep them together.  Yep, they exploded.  But, we still ate them ☺.  The second time, I made a thick béchamel-like paste and added an extra raw egg for the binder.  They fried beautifully and they were delicious.  The third time, I added chopped chives for a little freshness and rolled them panko in lieu of the bread crumbs.  End result-- perfection!
