Instructions
  1. En una sartén a fuego medio-alto calienta la mantequilla y el aceite sofriendo la cebolla hasta que se vea cristalina. Añade el jamón revolviendo constantemente para que adquiera el sabor de la cebolla y retira la sartén del fuego.
  2. Utilizando una licuadora une la leche, harina, sal, pimienta, vino seco y nuez moscada homogeneamente (bien unida).
  3. Devuelve la sartén a la hornilla y a fuego mediano deja que adquiera de nuevo calor. Une la mezcla de la licuadora con la cebolla y el jamón en la sarten, revolviendo vigorosamente hasta que se una todo, continuando la cocción hasta que la masa se separe suavemente del sartén.
  4. Coloca la masa en un plato y cúbrela con papel parafinado (de cera) presionando para que salga cualquier aire que contenga la masa. Una vez refrescada la masa refrigérala hasta que la vaya a utilizar.
  5. Formar las croquetas pasándolas por la harina despues por el huevo y después por la galleta.
  6. Fríelas en aceite caliente (375 F) hasta que se doren.
Recipe Notes

Sugerencia del Chef: Fríe las croquetas una al lado de la otra para que no se te abran al freír.
