Beef Chorizo Croquette with a Honey Mayo Dip Recipe


  1. 150g Beef chorizo
    500g Milk
    75g Butter
    110g Flour
    100g Bread crumbs
    3 Whole eggs
    5g Salt
    100g Additional Flour for Coating
    60g Pasteurized egg yolk
    10g White wine vinegar
    20g Dijon mustard
    100g Honey
    225g Sunflower oil
    2g Salt


  1. Dice the chorizo and pan fry it on a low heat. Once nice and crispy, drain to separate from the oil. The oil can be used for other dishes.
  2. Warm the milk and melt the butter in a separate pot.
  3. Once the butter is melted, add the flour and cook on a low heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. Slowly add the milk, whisking constantly.
  5. Add the cooked and diced chorizo.
  6. Once all the milk has been added, cook for a further 5 minutes on a low heat or until the texture is firm and creamy.
  7. Remove from the fire and let it cool for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  8. Transfer to a container and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (ideally overnight).
  9. Roll balls of 26g each (recipe makes 28).
  10. Prepare 3 containers: one with flour, one with bread crumbs and one with the whole eggs whisked.
  11. Coat the croquette balls in flour, then egg and finally in the bread crumbs.
  12. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
  13. For frying, heat up the oil in a table top fryer (if you don’t have one use a deep pot with oil). Fry for approximately 4 minutes at 180C or until golden brown.


  1. Add all the ingredients except the oil to a blender.
  2. On a medium speed, blend all ingredients and slowly start to add the oil to emulsify and create the mayo texture.
  3. Once all the oil is added, switch off the blender and taste for the seasoning.
