Ham Fritters - {Bunuelitos De Jamon}

Recipe By: Barbara Norman
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories: * Spanish Appetizers


3/4 cup Cured ham --minced
1 small Onion --chopped fine
1/2 cupOlive oil --for frying
Salt --to taste

1/3 cup Flour
1/3 teaspoon Baking powder
1 Egg
1/3 cup Water


Put flour in mixing bowl and gradually add enough water (about 1/3 cup) to make a batter of the consistency of a thin cream sauce. Stir in one lightly beaten egg and the baking powder.

Fry the minced ham in 2 tablespoons olive oil. When ham is browned, remove it and fry chopped onion until golden brown. When ham and onion have cooled, add them to fritter batter along with any oil left in frying pan. Salt to taste. (This much may be done a day in advance.)

Heat enough olive oil in a large frying pan to cover the bottom to a depth of 1/4-inch (about 1/2 cup). When oil begins to smoke, drop in cod mixture off teaspoon and fry until well browned, turning once. Total frying time will be 10-15 minutes. Drain on brown paper before serving.

Comments: The fritters should be small enough to be eaten in one bite from a toothpick. They need not be served hot, and in fact are best just warm. The basic batter will make three to four dozen small fritters and can be used for many varieties.
