Gluten free Spanish croquettes

Ingredients :

  • 100G Iberian ham, cut into cubes.
  • 50g of cut mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 40 g butter
  • 60g corn flour
  • 500 ml of milk
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • Pepper
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 4 slices of gluten free sandwich bread
  • 30g rapped parmesan cheese
  • Vegetable oil for frying

The recipe:

STEP 1: Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Then fry the ham and mushrooms until they are a little golden.

STEP 2 : remove the frying pan from the heat and add the corn flour.

STEP 3 : Add the milk step by step into your pan, then cook again by ruminating until the mixture becomes a little thick. You have to be careful that it doesn’t boil: to do this, mix it well regularly. Then add the nutmeg and pepper. Stir until the consistency is fairly homogeneous. Then leave to cook for at least 5 minutes so that all the mixture comes together well.

STEP 4: Turn off the heat, put the mixture in another bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and place the dish in the fridge for 2 hours to harden.

STEP 5 : Pour the eggs into a large soup plate, then take another plate to put the slices of bread crumbled with the parmesan .

STEP 6 : Take the preparation out of the fridge, put flour on your hands and then take a good spoonful of your preparation and make cylinders of about 5 cm. Dip them in the eggs and then in the breadcrumbs.

STEP 7 : Fill a third of a saucepan with vegetable oil. Make a test with a piece of bread and wait until it is cooked in 30 sc. When it is done, cook several croquettes for a few minutes until golden brown and crispy. Then take them out with a skimmer and drain them on absorbent paper.

Eat them hot, with a glass of wine with friends!

I hope you will enjoy these gluten free Spanish croquettes !
