Why call it Croquetes de Nadal?
Just because they are the ones you’d be likely to eat by the end of Christmas week, possibly on New Year’s Eve.
I will be making Croquetes de Nadal mixing different meats:
The base will be my good old Roasted Chicken, but I will also use the Carn d’Olla used for my Escudella.
This includes cuts of Beef, Pork, more Chicken and also some Cured Ham.
All that good meat that went into that heavenly soup is traditionally recycled (upcycled!) into either Canelons or Croquetes. Waste not want not!
I will keep up the tradition, transforming it into this glorious snack.
Grandmas would approve!
Croquetes must be cooked from frozen.
