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.
