Recipe by MEKELLER
"My mother found this recipe about 20 years ago. A great find! This is a great recipe for leftover turkey or chicken. You can even use tuna or salmon. My kids LOVE it, especially paired with leftover mashed potato cakes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 teaspoons
shredded cooked turkey
salt and ground black pepper to taste
vegetable oil, or as needed
I tried this as written, did some baked and some with the outside dipped in panko. The panko added a much needed crunch to these.. The ones without the panko, even fried ones never got crunchy. Make sure you add lots of salt and pepper
This recipe has potential, but it needs a lot of doctoring. It is very bland as written, much like eating plain shredded turkey. I think next time I'll try adding some onion and seasoning salt to the mixture. Maybe some cheese. It's a good base recipe, and I think anyone could have some fun experimenting with different ingredients.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
