Not sure what to do with all your leftover turkey? Turkey Croquettes are a perfect way to use your leftover turkey!


  • 12 oz cooked turkey breast (chopped fine (a food processor or chopper is great for this))
  • 3 medium potatoes (peeled, cooked and mashed)
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup parsley (chopped)
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 1/2 cup seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 egg (whisked)
  • olive oil spray
  • leftover turkey gravy for serving (optional)


  • In a large bowl, mash potatoes with 1/4 cup broth, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Saute garlic, and onions in oil over low heat. Add parsley, salt and pepper and cook until soft, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add turkey, and remaining broth, mix well and shut heat off.
  • Add turkey to mashed potatoes and using your clean hands mix well. Taste for salt and adjust if needed.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Measure 1/4 cup of mixture then form into croquettes. Place on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining mixture.
  • Dip each croquette in egg mixture, then breadcrumbs and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet for easy cleanup. Spray generously with olive oil (about 1 tbsp worth). Bake in the oven about 15 minutes, or until golden.
  • Optional, serve with leftover turkey gravy.
