Grandma's ham croquettes, yes, those of a lifetime are very difficult to imitate and many cooks like Karlos Arguiñano or Gorka Barredo They wanted to imitate them.

I like that the recipe for serrano ham croquettes is creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside, in addition to that are not oily.

To achieve this I have used my airfryer, leaving the croquettes for a few minutes and getting a perfect golden brown but without them being "fried".

I no longer plan to use the croquettes from the cook because This recipe for ham croquettes is easy to make, and has all the original and traditional flavor of a croquette.

In addition, its ingredients are the ones you find at home and you can add more like a ham croquette and that or a ham and chicken croquette.

What I do recommend is that you try to cook the ham croquettes in the air fryer because it is a new world.

I recommend other recipes with ham in a airfryer, such as the recipe for a complete sandwich in air fryer, the recipe for pizza with a cauliflower base in air fryer or the recipe for stuffed breast empanada in aifryer

Tips for a good recipe for ham corquettes in a airfryer

  • Let the onion be very poached or you can even caramelize it
  • It is important to add the milk little by little to help it thicken faster, in my case I have used manual silicone rods but you can use a spatula
  • Serrano ham can be in tacos, a ham cooked in a broth or chopped slices of ham
  • It is important to cook in the pan over low heat so that it does not burn or stick
  • I use the trick of the two spoons to shape the croquette but you can use your hands (I advise you to put a little olive oil to manipulate them better)
  • You can use the accessory to shape the croquettes
  • So that the ham croquettes are crispy I bread them in that order but it can be done in the traditional way with flour, egg and breadcrumbs in that order.
  • Watch the croquettes the last few minutes to know the level of browning you like

Substitution of ingredients

  • Semi-skimmed milk ➡️ Whole milk, skimmed milk or vegetable drinks
  • Cornstarch ➡️ Wheat flour or wholemeal flour
  • Ham Taquitos ➡️ You can not add ham or change it for roasted chicken, bits of blue cheese or whatever you like
  • Spices ➡️ I accompany it with nutmeg and black pepper to taste but you can put the ones that best suit you
