Ingredients

  • Jambon haché
    450 g (1 lb.) chopped ham
  • Purée de pommes de terre
    500 g (about 1 lb.) garlic mashed potatoes, store-bought
  • Oignon vert émincé
    2 green onions, chopped
  • Parmesan râpé
    80 ml (⅓ cup) grated parmesan
  • Chapelure panko
    375 ml (1½ cups) Panko breadcrumbs

Preparation

  1. Mix the chopped ham, mashed potatoes, green onions, parmesan and 125 ml (½ cup) of breadcrumbs in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Form 12 croquettes, using about 80 ml (⅓ cup) of the mixture for each.
  3. Place the remaining breadcrumbs in a deep plate. Coat the croquettes in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the croquettes for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden‑brown.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool slightly on the counter, and then refrigerate to cool completely.
  6. Place the croquettes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours.
  7. Transfer the croquettes into a large airtight bag. Remove the air from the bag and seal it. Place the bag in the freezer.
  8. The night before your meal, let the bag thaw out in the refrigerator.
  9. When ready to eat, reheat the croquettes in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes at 205°C (400°F), turning them at the halfway point, or reheat them in the microwave.
