Serrano Ham and Goat Cheese Croquettes #SundaySupper

Serrano Ham and Goat Cheese Croquettes are a Spanish tapas recipe I created for Sunday Supper’s Spanish Tapas. Spanish tapas are basically appetizers or small meals. I enjoy them because you can try many different dishes instead of one meal.

These flavors came out great. The goat cheese was very mild and added a creaminess to the potatoes. These would be great with a Chimichurri or aioli sauce but we never got around to dipping them. Both time I made them, they disappeared before anyone could realize they needed dip.

My family enjoyed the Serrano Ham and Goat Cheese Croquettes so much they now want me to make them weekly. We also made a few other tapas recipe that I will share another time. I enjoyed the Spanish flavors and will be experimenting with them more. Let me know what you think.
