Leek and Mushroom Croquettes

Serves 4-6 Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

Flavourful bites of food are hard to resist any time, but when they come in the shape of these, crispy round balls of yumminess, it is impossible to not just dig in. Tapas dishes are known for their versatility, shareability, finger-friendly nature, making these a popular and enjoyable choice when serving small plates in a social setting. We have yet to create a tapas book, (but Amazing Grazing comes close!)

We love these so much, we dream about them! hahaha. Don't forget to whip up a batch of the also fantastic Paprika Aioli to go with, or you could just use regular aioli. We certainly have loads of options for that amazing dippy dressing on this site.

Get yourself organised. This must be on your to do (to eat) list now!
