Recipe: Spanish ham croquettes


  • Butter
  • Flour
  • Milk
  • Olive oil
  • Spanish ham (or whatever you want to add)
  • Onion
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • Egg
  • Bread crumbs


  1. We chop Spanish ham and onion in small pieces.
  2. We add a spoonful of butter and another of olive oil in a pan. We add the onion and we wait to sweeten it and the butter to melt on, a low heat.
  3. Afterwards, the small ham pieces are added and spoken during some minutes.
  4. We add 3 flour spoonfuls to fry it slightly in order to avoid the flavour of the dough.
  5. We add four glassful of milk, salt and nutmeg while we stir it. We continue stiring it until the dough until the it sticks to the pan sides.
  6. We let the dough to cool off. If we leave it in the fridge during one day, the croquettes will be done easier.
  7. To shape them, you can use a spoon. Dip them in fluor, egg and nutmeg.
  8. Fry them using very hot oil.
  9. Ready-to-serve!
