Ham and Corn Croquettes

* ½ kilo potatoes, peeled
* 3 tbsp unsalted butter
* ¼ cup fresh milk
* 1 cup ham, finely chopped
* ½ cup queso de bola, grated
* ½ cup sweet kernel corn
* 1 large egg , beaten
* 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
* salt (to taste)
* ground black pepper (to taste)
* lemons (for serving)

1) Pour enough water in a medium pot to cover potatoes about 1 inch. Place over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until potatoes are tender. Transfer to a large bowl and mash with butter and milk. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Let cool enough to touch.

2) Mix ham, cheese, corn and egg into the potato mixture. Roll about ½ cup mixture into a thick log and roll into panko breadcrumbs. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining potato mixture. Chill until firm.

3) Heat enough oil in a deep sauté pan over medium heat to cover croquettes. Gently add croquettes to the hot oil and fry until browned on all sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve while warm with lemon wedges.
