In a frying pan, over medium heat, cook patties 4 to 5 minutes on each side in a little butter and olive oil.

Meanwhile, prepare sauce: In a saucepan, over low heat, blend pesto, mustard, cream and remaining Brie or Camembert cheese into a smooth sauce (about 5 minutes). Season to taste with salt and pepper .

Pour sauce over croquettes and serve.
