Directions In a large skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, crumble and set aside. Add onion to skillet and saute over medium heat until golden about 15 minutes. Set aside. Meanwhile, soak the bread in the milk for 10 minutes. Squeeze bread to remove any excess liquid and set aside. In a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring until they begin to throw off their liquid. Turn heat up to high and continue to cook and stir until the mushrooms reabsorb their liquid about 12 minutes. Place mushrooms and onion on cutting board, allow them to cool slightly then finely mince. In bowl, combine mushrooms and onion with bacon, bread, garlic, parsley, egg yolk, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and form into 8 croquettes. Roll the croquettes in bread crumbs. Heat the oil and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Fry until croquettes until golden brown on all sides about 3 minutes per side. Serve warm with a squeeze of lemon juice.
