Leftover Turkey Croquettes

Leftover Turkey Croquettes


Makes a great after Thanksgiving dish.


  • 2 cups diced, cooked turkey
  • 2 cups leftover stuffing
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup cooked peas or other veggie
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • chicken broth (optional)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a bowl combine the turkey, stuffing, eggs, salt and pepper, cheese and peas.
  2. 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.
  3. Working in batches, cook the croquettes in the hot oil until they are golden brown on each side, about three minutes per side.
  4. Keep them warm in a low oven on a paper towel-lined plate.
