Method:

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until bubbling and combined. Gradually add the milk and pan juices and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until thick. Add the manchego, lamb and parsley and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, place in a small tray and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
  2. Once chilled and firm, roll heaped tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and freeze for 10 minutes, or until firm.
  3. Place the extra flour, the egg and breadcrumbs in 3 separate bowls.
  4. Working in batches, dip into the flour, then egg, and finally breadcrumbs, tossing gently to coat.
  5. Fill a medium saucepan two thirds full with oil and place over medium heat. Heat to 180°C on a deep frying thermometer. In batches, cook the croquettes for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining croquettes and keep warm.
  6. Serve croquettes with mojo verde, extra manchego and lemon wedges.
