Croquetas were imported to Spain by France in the 17th century. It is basically a ball of béchamel with a variety of ingredients inside such as jamon, meat, fish, egg etc… After that the croqueta is then bathed in bread crumb and fried in very hot virgin olive oil. The virgin olive oil is key for a great tasting croqueta, the best croquetas in Madrid no doubt use virgin olive oil. It would not be the same.
