Spanish Ham Croquettes are a common sight on bar counters and in homes across Spain, served as a tapa, light lunch, or a dinner along with a salad. The jamon serrano in this recipe could be replaced with chopped hard-boiled eggs, shredded salt cod, minced shrimp, chopped chorizo, cheese, or just about any vegetable. Start the preparation the previous day to allow the béchamel time to set. It will make the mixture easier to handle when shaping the croquetas.
