My sister blessed me with the leftover ham hock from yesterdays dinner. Has a huge amount of meat still attached, It has a bit too much of an orange flavor to it for my tastes, but still usable.
I'm thinking about making some croquettes out of it. Nothing classic, sort of makeshift. I also have leftover roasted asparagus and corn mixture which I'm thinking could be used as part of the binder, and some stuffing.
I guess, I need an egg or two, some breadcrumbs for the outside. But, somehow I think the interior needs something else? I'm used to making chicken or turkey croquettes, never did ham. I'm trying to figure out how to cut down on that citrus flavor (and the saltiness as well). I'm low on provisions at the moment, so winging it is in order from what I have in the pantry.
