Thanksgiving leftovers – Ham Time

Its time to tackle that leftover ham from Thanksgiving dinner! These leftovers are just never ending :-)!


Anyway, I decided that the ham will be part of my potatoes croquettes (croquetas de papa) with of course an added “Andy” twist!

For this I used:

  • Potatoes
  • Cream Cheese
  • Jalapeños
  • Leftover thanksgiving ham chopped real small
  • Breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg and a little bit of milk

Made some mashed potato and to it I added some cream cheese and some chopped jalapeños and the chopped ham.


Once it cooled down enough to handle, I rolled small amounts into perfectly shaped croquettes.


After they are all nicely rolled, dip in some egg whisked with a little bit of milk, and coat with breadcrumbs.


Now you have 2 choices, deep fry them (which I did today), for about 1 minute or until nice and golden, or bake in a 385 Deg F oven for about 20 minutes.


Make a salad of choice and serve when nice and warm!
