Turkey Croquettes might conjure up an image of Ma’s Diner to some people. I see a great way to use two or maybe three Thanksgiving leftovers.
Years ago I’d make a big turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, corn, gravy, cranberry sauce, gravy, pie, pumpkin roll and more. Did I say gravy?
Leftovers went home with guests and family in plastic containers and baggies for snacking or Friday’s lunch.
Now its just the two of us, and even scaled that same dinner means we’ll have leftovers.
Stuffing, shredded turkey and broth make a delicious patty. Top with Chicken Milk Gravy and you’ll forget it was made from leftovers!
