1. Make a bechamel over low heat to avoid the formation of lumps, that is, fry the butter with the flour, and then add the milk, little by little, to thicken the dough.
2. When the bechamel is thick, add the salt and ham (or other chosen ingredients). Mix everything.
3. Stir the whole mixture for about five minutes, keeping it over low heat.
4. Spread the béchamel on a plate or platter and let it cool.
5. When the dough is cold, you can make the croquettes. To do this, take small amounts of dough and give them the size and shape you want with your hands or with the help of two spoons.
6. Pass the croquettes first in flour, then in beaten egg and finally in breadcrumbs.
7. Fry the battered croquettes in plenty of oil over high heat, so that they are crisp.
