Spanish porcini mushroom Croquetas - these are a world away from the frozen potato affairs you find skulking at the bottom of supermarket freezers. You'll find these croquetas gracing some of the best pintxos bars in San Sebastian. These are entirely hand-made not with potato but with a thick bechamel made from the local milk of the region. Hand rolled and coated in breadcrumbs they are made using the best ingredients. In this case using hand-picked porcini mushrooms.
Making your own croquetas is great fun but this not only takes out some of the hard labour but ensure your getting the authentic croquetas experience made with top quality Spanish ingredients.
They make a perfect tapas or pintxos, just deep fry from frozen in medium hot oil until golden brown on the outside or shallow fry in small batches, turning often, until a lovely, crunchy golden colour for 3-5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and serve immediately.
Come frozen in trays of 12 croquetas of approx. 50g each. Cook from frozen
