Tosfrit Recipe: Croquettes with Totas

How about putting a fun twist on the classic ham croquettes? In this recipe, we show you how to make delicious croquettes using an unexpected ingredient: Tosfrit’s ham-flavoured Totas. Get ready to surprise your taste buds with this crunchy and tasty combination!


  • 100 grams of serrano ham chopped into small pieces
  • 50 grams of butter
  • 100 grams of flour
  • 500 ml milk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • Tosfrit ham-flavoured Totas (enough to cover the croquettes)
  • Sunflower oil (for frying)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preparation of the béchamel sauce: In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and mix well until you obtain a homogeneous paste. Cook the mixture for a few minutes, stirring constantly so that it does not burn.
  2. Add the milk: Gradually stir the milk into the butter and flour mixture. Cook over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens and acquires a smooth, creamy texture.
  3. Add the ham: Once the béchamel sauce is ready, add the chopped ham and mix well. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Chill the mixture: Transfer the croquette mixture to a shallow bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour, or until firm and workable.
  5. Form the croquettes: With the help of a spoon, take portions of the croquette mixture and shape them into oval or round shapes, according to your preference.
  6. Coating with Totas: Crush the Tosfrit ham-flavoured Totas until you obtain a fine powder. Dip each croquette in beaten egg and then in the Totas crumbs, making sure to cover them completely.
  7. Fry the croquettes: Heat plenty of sunflower oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the croquettes in batches until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Remove from the oil and place on paper towels to remove excess oil.

And that’s it! Now you can enjoy irresistible ham croquettes with a crispy and tasty touch thanks to Tosfrit’s ham-flavoured Totas.
