Ham Croquetas

LARD “Le Fondant”
These lovely potato croquettes featuring the delicate flavour of Sublim’ lard make meltingly soft comfort food.
Preparation : 30 mins
Baking : 5 mins
20 / 25 croquetas
75 g flour
60 g SUBLIM' “Le Fondant” lard
100 g thick cut Jambon de Bayonne or other ham (do not use "wafer" thin ham)
45 cl milk
25 g Parmesan cheese
25 g Comté cheese
Salt, pepper, nutmeg
2 eggs + 1 tablespoon water
200 g breadcrumbs
100/200 g flour
1 heaped tsp SUBLIM' “Le Fondant” lard, for cooking


1 saucepan


Cut the ham into small cubes.
Prepare a Béchamel sauce: melt SUBLIM’ “Le Fondant” lard in a saucepan
with the flour, season with salt, mix well, then add the milk and simmer over a moderate heat until a smooth mixture is obtained.
Add the cheese(s) and diced ham, check the seasoning, then pour the mixture into a dish and leave to set in the fridge.
Once the mixture has set well, shape into little balls (about 20/25 g) and return to the fridge to set for 15 to 30 minutes.
To prepare the breadcrumbs: Take three separate bowls and add:
a tablespoon of water and a pinch of salt to 2 eggs, then beat together,
Roll the croquettes in turn through:
the flour, the egg, and then the breadcrumbs,
Repeat these steps once more.
At this stage, they can be left uncovered in the refrigerator to prevent them from softening; you can cook them later.
When you are ready to cook them, heat SUBLIM’ “Le Fondant” lard in a saucepan.
(you can also use frying oil) and immerse the breaded croquettes in small quantities until they are nice and golden.
Drain and lightly season with salt.
Serve immediately – they are a sure-fire hit!
