Turkey Croquettes – Leftovers #7

I had a hankering to make Thanksgiving dinner the other day.  The fall weather inspires me to make cozy, comforting things like turkey and stuffing.  With that said, what can I do with all this leftover turkey and stuffing?  Turn them into these crisp, satisfying croquettes!

  • 2 C. diced, cooked turkey
  • 2 C. leftover stuffing click here for recipe
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 C. cooked peas or other veggie
  • 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
  • chicken broth if needed
  • 1 T. olive oil

In a bowl combine the turkey, stuffing, eggs, salt and pepper, cheese, and peas.  Use your hands to combine the mixture and form it into patties- if the mixture is too dry add a little chicken broth as needed to get it to hold together.  Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet on medium heat.  Working in batches, cook the croquettes in the hot oil until they are golden brown on each side, about three minutes per side.  Keep them warm in a low oven on a paper towel- lined plate.
