Prepare the ingredients before making Croquetas in your home. Then, follow these steps below to serve Croquetas for your family or friends.

Ingredients: Croquetas

  • 1 desert spoon of olive oil
  • 2 desert spoons of flour
  • 1/4 litre of milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 100 grams bread crumbs
  • Nutmeg
  • 150 grams ham, cut into small pieces
  • Salt

How to Make Croquetas

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 6 steps you must follow to make Croquetas in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Put the oil in a frying pan and warm it. Once the oil is warm (but before it is so hot that smoke rises from it) remove the pan from the heat and add the flour to the oil. Stir with a wooden spoon until it becomes a paste.
  • Step 2
  • Put the pan on the heat again and add the milk, little by little, stirring the mixture all the time until it is cooked and even. Add the nutmeg, a pinch of salt and the ham cut into small pieces. Cook in the pan until the mixture is stiff, and don't stop stirring.
  • Step 3
  • As soon as the mixture is stiff enough, spoon it into a bowl and let it cool. Beat the egg. Once the mixture is cool, make small portions and mould them with your hands into the shape of a croqueta (oval). Dip each croqueta into the beaten egg and then dip it into the breadcrumbs which will stick to the croqueta because of the egg. Place each croqueta separately on a plate. You can fry them straight away, or put them into the fridge and leave them until you are ready to cook and eat them.
  • Step 4
  • Fry the croquetas in a pan with enough oil to cover them. When they are golden and crispy, take them out and lay them on kitchen roll to absorb the excess oil. Serve straight away.
  • Step 5
  • Croquetas are made of... amost anything!!: Instead of using ham, you can use serrano ham, bacon, cheese, tuna, cooked chicken, fish....... It is a perfect way to use up the last bits of roast meat or fish used the day before.
  • Step 6
  • Make more and freeze: You can make more croquetas than you intend to use, and freeze them once they are ready to fry.
