Per croqueta (for 20)
For a bit of variation, use cured Spanish ham instead of the pickled peppers. Finely chop, then stir into the white sauce (in step 2) before chilling.
Make and fry the croquetas, open-freeze on trays, not touching, then store for up to 1 month in bags. Cook from frozen on a baking sheet in a 200°C/ fan180°C/gas 6 oven for 15 minutes.
Guindillas are Spanish peppers, pickled while stillgreen. They’re mild with a sour, salty taste. Buy the Fragata brand at Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado.
