Description

These croquettes make for a delicious appetizer for any occasion. Porcini mushrom and ham work in perfect harmony as the main flavors in the recipe. The simple batter is made from a bechamel sauce that is refrigerated, this allows it to firm up before frying. Breadcrumbs coat the croquettes, ensuring they have a golden brown and crispy exterior that perfectly contrasts the delicate texture of the interior. Serve as is, or make a complementary dip to serve with them.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams porcini
  • 80 grams butter
  • 80 grams flour (sifted)
  • 750 milliliters milk (heated)
  • 100 grams ham (Iberian, you can substitute pancetta)
  • salt
  • 1 eggs (beaten)
  • bread crumbs
  • vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions

  1. 1If you have purchased dried porcinis, the first step is to rehydrate them in either hot water or hot milk.
  2. 2Once hydrated, dice the porcinis finely and saute for a few minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. 3Make the bechamel sauce. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Sift in the flour and whisk. Whisk in hot milk little by little until there are no lumps and the mixture comes to a sauce-like consistency.
  4. 4Add the chopped ham and mushrooms to the sauce. Salt to taste.
  5. 5Pour the bechamel out onto a flat pan and refrigerate until cooled.
  6. 6Pinch off sections of the bechamel and form into croquette balls. Coat the croquettes in beaten egg and then bread crumbs.
  7. 7Fry the croquettes in plenty of hot oil until crispy.
