Ham and veal croquettes



Fry the minced veal in plenty of hot Spanish olive oil and drain. Fry the sliced ham in the same olive oil then drain. Mince the veal and ham together. Make a béchamel sauce by melting the butter then adding the flour and stirring constantly to mix well. In a separate pan, bring the milk and cream to the boil. Then, stirring all the time, slowly add the milk and cream to the butter and flour mixture. Cook carefully for about 45 minutes, stirring constantly. A few minutes before the end, add the veal and ham. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the mixture from the heat and transfer to a plastic container. Place a sheet of kitchen film over the surface, so that the mixture is not in contact with the air. Leave to cool so that the mixture is easier to work. To make the croquettes, place a little flour on the work surface and roll out small portions of the mixture to the desired shape. Dip in a bowl with the beaten egg covering well, and straining the egg so that it can be used for the whole process. Then coat the croquettes with breadcrumbs and fry in a frying-pan or deep fryer.
