Ham Croquettes (Croquetas de jamon)

Ham Croquettes (Croquetas de Jamon) are a classic Spanish tapas dish. Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, these little flavor bombs will knock your socks off.




Ingredients
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons butter
½ cup finely minced onion
¼ and ½ cup flour, divided
3 cups whole milk
3 cups panko breadcrumbs
3 eggs
6 ounces finely chopped serrano ham, very finely minced
salt
pepper
pinch of nutmeg
oil for frying
Instructions
Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Add butter and olive oil and when butter is melted and oil is warm, add onion. Saute onion until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ¼ cup flour and whisk until browned and nutty, one to two minutes.
Very slowly whisk in milk, a little at a time to avoid a lumpy sauce. Season with a little salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg (remember that the ham is salty, so go easy on the salt at first). Continue to whisk constantly until sauce has thickened, 10-15 minutes. When sauce has thickened, stir in ham. Taste and add more seasoning if needed.
Pour sauce into a baking sheet and allow to cool, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours (can also be done the day before cooking).
When ready to cook, preheat oven to 200°F and prepare a baking sheet fitted with a cooling rack. This is for keeping the croquettas warm after frying until you are ready to serve.
