Croquetas are widely known all over the world. They are small fried rolls containing usually as main ingredients mashed potatoes, and minced meat, shellfish, fish, vegetables, and soaked white bread, egg, onion, spices and herbs, wine, milk, beer or any of the combination thereof, sometimes with a filling, often encased in breadcrumbs. Cuban croquetas are usually made of ham, beef, chicken, or fish. They are generally flour-based instead of using potatoes.
The croquette is usually shaped into a cylinder or disk, and then deep-fried. The croquette was a French invention that gained worldwide popularity, both as a delicacy and as a fast food.
