Spanish Ham and Chorizo Croquettes


- Advertisement -


  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • butter
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 4 ozs chopped Spanish ham
  • 4 slices chorizo Revilla
  • manchego cheese
  • pinch nutmeg
  • chopped parsley
  • 1 pint milk,
  • egg
  • breadcrumbs


1, Fry 1 small onion and 2 cloves garlic in butter, add 2 tbs flour and stir then add about 4 ozs of chopped Spanish ham and 4 slices chorizo Revilla all in small sized pieces.

2, Add a little manchego cheese, a pinch of nutmeg, and chopped parsley to your mixture and mix well.

3, Start adding the milk (about 1 pint, I like it creamy so I used half a tin of Ideal milk and top to the pint with bottled milk) and stir continuously until mixture forms a ball in the centre of the pan. It might take a while and If this doesn’t happen make a paste with a tablespoon flour and a little milk and add to the mixture until the desired consistency is achieved. Allow to cool.

4, I blitz the whole mixture when cold so that the texture is very creamy but you may leave the mixture as it is to find pieces of the ham and chorizo. I find it useful to put the mixture in the fridge once it has cooled down for a few hours or even overnight as then it will be easier to form the croquette shapes. Once this is done bind with seasoned egg and breadcrumbs and fry until golden.
