Croquetas de Serrano jamon y manchego

with 2 comments

2 tbs butter
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 onion finely diced
7 tbs of flour
1 1/2 cups of milk
6 tbs of chopped up jamon / or any other meat or maybe even mushrooms

so.. melt butter and oilve oil
once melted add onion.. cook medium high heat till its translucent
mix in flour (it will get all pasty and nasty) cook this for about a min… lower the heat a little
then pour in milk slowly so that it can incorporate into the flour mixture
bring back up the heat a little bit until milk flour mixture (bechamel) comes all smooth and creamy (no flour lumps)
add in ham, stir it up for about a min

take off heat and place in a airtight container until cool (overnight is even better)

next day take it out, portion it up until you have about 16 equal ovals., get 3 dishes, one for flour, one for about 2 beaten eggs, one for breadcrumbs
coat a ball of batter in flour lightly, and shake excess off
dip in eggwash, shake excess off
dip in breadcrumbs,… shake it
fry in olive oil,,, (or if u dont have.. any oil is fine) make sure the oil is high enough to fully cover the croquettes. also make sure the temperature is about 325. Should only take 1 min each side. 2 min total.

tip.. only fry 4 at once so the temperature doesn’t drop to much. and always adjust the heat to compensate for heat loss or gain. let them cool down and shove them in yo mouth!

other ideas… instead of jamon you can use some tasty earthy mushrooms, add in some tomato paste into the bechamel, add in some manchego cheese. ideas are endless
