I have Turkey comming out of my ears

I am done with the Turkey. Thursday the turkey was wonderful. Friday the turkey sandwiches were great. Saturday the Turkey salad was perfect. Sunday the turkey pot pie was so comforting. Then I had to think of something else to make with that last bit of leftover turkey. I was dreading turkey again. I love turkey but come on. Enough is enough. I have to say this is about all I can handle. Even though I still have turkey left over I was ready to ditch it. Then I remembered something my mother made when I was a kid. Turkey croquettes!! These croquettes are so good and let me tell you it doesn’t taste like turkey.


4 cups of chopped turkey
2 cups of leftover stuffing
2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes
2 cups of seasoned bread crumbs
Oil for frying
3 eggs beaten

Mix turkey stuffing and mashed potatoes together and roll in a cone shape. Dip them in the egg and then coat them in seasoned bread crumbs. Fry to a golden brown.


1/2 cup of sour cream
1 cup of leftover turkey gravy
2 cups of milk.
1/3 cup of chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of corn starch and 1/4 cup of milk. Mix together and set aside.

Heat all remaining ingredients together. As soon as the sauce starts to boil turn down heat and add the corn starch mixture. Continuously sure until thicken.
Pour over your Croquettes and you can sprinkle with the following optional cheeses.
Parmesan cheese, feta cheese or gorgonzola cheese.
Makes 12 Croquettes

  1. This looks like something we would truly enjoy. Unfortunately, we had a very small turkey dinner and our leftovers were gone quicker than yours. I will have to remember this one though. YUM!
