another idea for turkey leftovers

7:31 PM Posted by Roo

No, I don't have any turkey left from Thanksgiving but I did make another recipe that we really loved with our leftover turkey. If you're having turkey for Christmas this is a great idea for leftovers. We're having ham so it will probably be awhile before I make these again.

This recipe is from Gina's Skinny Recipes and the original can be found here.

Baked Turkey Croquettes

POINTS Plus: 6
Serving Size: 3 croquettes
Servings: 6

12 oz cooked turkey breast, chopped fine with a food processor
3 potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed
¾ cup fat free chicken broth
2 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
½ cup parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper
½ cup seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
1 egg, whisked
Olive oil spray (about 1 tbsp)


In a large bowl, mash potatoes with ¼ cup broth, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Sauté 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.

Add turkey to mashed potatoes and using your clean hands mix well. Taste for salt and adjust if needed.

Preheat oven to 450.

Measure ¼ cup of mixture then form into croquettes. Place on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining mixture.

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 15 minutes, or until golden.
