  Split peas 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Boiling water 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Freshly grated nutmeg 1 Pinch
  Minced onions 2 Tablespoon
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Whole wheat bread slice 1 , broken into soft crumbs
  Raw wheat germ 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Gradually drop split peas into boiling water, making certain water continues to boil.
Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 25 minutes or until peas are tender.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Drain (reserving liquid) and place peas in blender or a sieve.
Puree and add butter, nutmeg, onion, egg, and bread crumbs.
If the mixture won't hold together, add a little of the reserved cooking liquid.
Form into oblong patties and roll in wheat germ.
Chill if necessary.
Place on well greased baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes; turn and bake another 5 minutes or until lightly-browned.
Croquettes may also be fried until browned.
