Our nduja croquettes are creamy and full of flavour! These crispy panko balls are perfect as a starter for your dinner party.

Ingredients:

  • 150g butter
  • 150g flour
  • 300ml milk
  • 50g parmesan
  • 75g nduja
  • 12g salt
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 150g panko breadcrumbs

Cooking Method:


1

First, place the nduja in the oven at 140°C fan/gas mark 1 for about 5-6 minutes, enough to melt it.

2

In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour and salt. Once combined, slowly add the milk little by little and keep whisking over a medium heat for around 5 minutes, until the flour has completely cooked out. The mixture should become very thick and firm. 

3

Add the cheese and melted nduja and give it a good mix to incorporate the ingredients. Then pour the mix out into a container and leave to cool for half an hour, before transferring to the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours to cool and set. Once it's cooled, it will become easier to handle. 

4

To coat the croquettes in breadcrumbs you'll need three bowls; one with seasoned flour, one with the whisked eggs and one with the breadcrumbs. You’ll also need a tray lined with baking paper on to place the coated croquettes. 

5

Using a spoon, scoop out the mixture to your preferred size and roll it into a rough ball. You should be able to make 8 balls with this mixture. Then drop the ball into the flour, then in the egg wash, and finally in the breadcrumbs. Always keep one hand dry and repeat the process until all balls are breaded. 

6

Roll the balls again if you feel like they need a little more shaping and leave them to rest for at least one hour in the fridge before cooking. 

7

Ideally, the croquettes will be deep fried in vegetable oil at 160°C/320°F for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, however they can be cooked in a very hot oven too. If baking, pre heat the fan assisted oven to 220°C/gas mark 7 and bake them on a tray lined with baking paper for around 5-6 minutes until golden brown.

Serve hot with a dip of your choice and enjoy!
