Today we are going to show you how to make spanish croquetas, but even better the Angelines' croquetas! We are pretty lucky to enjoy them when she prepares them for us. Maybe you think it is hard work to prepare them, but you can see how easy the process is. Now, you don´t have to wait to go to spain, or to go to a restaurant, you can prepare them at home! You just need a bit of practice...

- 3 tablespoons of flour
- Jamón serrano, ham, cod, chicken, cheese, turkey, spinach... (you can choose your favourite)
- 3/4 of a cup of meat stock
- Olive oil
- Salt
- Milk
- 1 tablespoon of butter or margarine 
- 1/4 of an onion
- 2 cheese wedges 
- Egg
- Breadcrumb
- Flour

- Chop the onion finely,

- Warm the milk, but do not boil it.

- Prepare a plate with flour on it.

Prepare a plate with breadcrumbs on it.

- Cut finely the 3 slices of ham, better from the butcher.

First.  In a deep pot, place olive oil and the onion that we cut before. Cook the onion, until it looks gold, then add the butter.

Second. Today we are doing the ham croquetas, so place it inside of the pot with the 2 cheese wedges. Move it until looks like a mixture.

Third.  Add the flour and move it, until it has a some colour.

Fourth.  Add the milk, depends of the creaminess that you want you should add more or less. If you add too much, it will be liquidy and  complicated to make the croquetas. If we add not enough, the paste will be too dense and will be hard to eat them. That is the hardest part of the recipe, you need some experience to prepare them in the right way.

Fifth.  Add 3/4 of a cup of meat stock, and move again the mixture until it is perfectly cooked. The trick to know when it is done, the mixture will start to pop.

Sixth.  Take the pot out of the heat, and we mix the mixture with a blender, if you don't want to feel some clumps in it. Taste it and add salt if needed. 

Seventh.  Place the mixture on a dish and let it cool, at least for an hour and a half, until it is mild and you can manipulate it to do the croquetas. 

Eighth.  Whip at least one egg on a plate. 

Ninth.  To make the croquetas, you also need a bit of experience, pick a bit of mixture with a tablespoon, place them on the plate with flour (be careful not to put so much flour, if not they will dry). With the hand make the form, and place it first on the place with egg, and then on the one with breadcrumbs. 

Tenth.  In a pan, place a bit of oil, and fry them. Move them, so they will have a uniform colour. 

And..... They should look like that! 

And try to eat them when they are still warm! Enjoy them!



- If you are not going to eat them the same day, you can freeze them in a tupperware after the step eight. It is worth it to make more, so you have for some days.
