Deliciously Good!

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of salted butter
  • 1/4 cup of chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • pinch of cumin optional
  • 2 to 3 cups ground ham Clifty Farms Country Ham Seasoning Pieces
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Extra flour
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 2 cups of breadcrumbs
  1. Grind ham pieces in meat grinder or food processor in batches. Set aside.
  2. In a large pan, over medium heat, melt butter and oil together. Stir in onions and seasonings. Cook until onions are translucent, 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk in flour, continue to whisk 1 minute, add 1 cup milk, continue whisking until smooth. Add remaining ½ cup milk and whisk continuously 2-3 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
  4. Whisk in cheese. Turn off the heat and fold in the ham. Transfer the ham mixture to a large bowl and cover. Refrigerate 4-24 hours.
  5. Remove ham mixture from refrigerated, fill a pie plate with flour, another pie plate with breadcrumbs and a bowl with beaten eggs.
  6. Take a tablespoon of the ham mixture and roll it in your hands to form a log. Use a little flour on your hands if mixture is sticky. Roll logs in flour, shake off excess. Dip logs into the beaten eggs, and then roll in the breadcrumbs. Continue until all the ham mixture is used. Remove and repeat with remaining croquettes.
  7. Place breaded logs into a lightly greased 2 quart baking dish. Bake at 375 until golden brown and crispy. 45 minutes.
