- 100 g corn bits
- 100 g honey baked ham
- 1½ cups breadcrumbs
- 75 g Perfect Italiano Mozzarella cheese
- 75 g Perfect Italiano Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 egg, beaten
- Extra breadcrumbs for coating
- Cooking oil
Pinch Perfect Italiano Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses together to form 1cm diameter balls.
Blitz or finely chop ham, corn, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper together until you get a paste texture.
Adjust with more breadcrumbs if mixture is too moist.
Take about 1½ tbsps of paste and flatten with both palms.
Place 1-cm cheese ball into the centre and gently fold and enclose by rolling it smoothly between the palms to form a 4-cm diameter ball. Coat cheese balls with beaten egg, followed by breadcrumbs.
In hot pan, pan fry croquettes until nicely browned. Bite into the croquette and see the cheese ooze out!
