Baked Turkey Croquettes

Gregg Hollander 0

"Not sure what to do with all your leftover turkey? Croquettes are a perfect way to use your leftover turkey! I grew up eating these, but my mom always fries hers. I was hoping to make them lighter by baking them instead, and the results were great. I sprayed them generously with my misto and then baked them. Top them with a little turkey gravy or chicken gravy and serve with and a vegetable on the side. These also make great appetizers. You could substitute chicken breast for turkey if you wish. Enjoy!"

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