Heat the oil in a pan and saute minced unions until transparent.
Stir in the flour and cook it briefly, then whisk in the milk.
Cook, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.
Season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Stir in the jam?n and spread the mixture into a dish. Refrigerate until solid.
Place the beaten eggs in one dish, the bread crumbs in another.
With moistened hands, form the chilled mixture into balls or cylinders.
Dip each croqueta first in bread crumbs, then in beaten egg, then in bread crumbs again, taking care that they are well covered .
Allow to cool for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a deep fryer and fry the croquetas, a few at a time, until golden - about 3 minutes.
I use jamon serrano in almost all my food now, and it is particularly tasty in these hot tapas. I use 'taquitos de Jamon Serrano', which is diced ham for cooking.
Serve hot with other tapas. Also perfect with your favorite beer.
