Dip patties into flour, shake off excess flour. Fry 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve with Bechamel sauce made of butter, flour, milk and chicken broth. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add flour to hot butter to make a paste, remove from heat and cool. Heat milk and broth together, gradually add to cooled flour mixture.
