Chef's recommendations

  • Simply pop on a baking sheet and heat! 

  • Serve with a side of Morita aioli or any mayo-based dipping sauce

  • Enjoy with a cold, bitter IPA or crisp lager 

  • Add to a board with any cured meat, cheeses, olives, and crackers to make the ultimate charcuterie board!

Cooking Instructions

  1. Do not defrost.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  3. Place croquetas on a sheet tray, 1-2 inches apart.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes, until cooked through. If the croquetas are hot and firm, remove from the oven. If they are still soft, cook for an additional 10 minutes until firm.

  5. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes on the sheet pan. Transfer to a plate and serve immediately with a side of Morita aioli (see recipe above)!
