Melt butter.
Stir in flour.
Gradually stir in cream.
Add onion juice, nutmeg, cayenne, and 1 teaspoon salt.
Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until smooth and thick.
Add parsley and mix enough white sauce with chicken and sweetbreads to make a mixture stiff enough to hold its shape.
Spread in greased shallow pan and chill thoroughly.
Shape into croquettes about 1 x 1 x 2 1/2 inches.
Dip each croquette into beaten egg, then roll in crumbs, covering completely.
Let dry in a cool place or a refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer.
Fry only a few at a time.
Drop into hot deep fat (390°F on fat thermometer) and fry until golden brown, for about 2 to 4 minutes.
