Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup butter - (1/2 stick)

  • 5

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 9

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 3/4

    cup dry white wine

  • 6

    tablespoons low-salt chicken broth

  • 6

    tablespoons whole milk

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground nutmeg - (generous)

  • 1/2

    cup finely-chopped Serrano ham or prosciutto

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    large eggs lightly beaten

  • 2

    cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) (available at Asian markets and in the Asian foods section of some supermarkets)

  • Additional olive oil for frying

Directions

Melt butter with 5 tablespoons oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour; stir 3 minutes. Gradually stir in wine, broth, milk, and nutmeg. Stir until mixture thickens, about 45 seconds. Add ham and parsley; cook until mixture is thick, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cool completely, stirring occasionally. Spread ham mixture on plate. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 4 hours. Place beaten eggs and panko in separate medium bowls. Shape ham mixture into 1-inch balls. Dip balls in egg, then coat with panko. Heat enough oil to come 1/2 inch up sides of pan in heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of croquettes and fry until golden brown, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining croquettes. Transfer to platter. This recipe yields about 30 croquettes.
