A spin off of our Easy Chicken Croquettes, and just as tasty. Great for OAMC too. The croquettes freeze well, then just pop them in the microwave for a quick meal or snack. :)
- 2 -3 cups cooked turkey, chopped up (leftovers)
- 2 cups prepared stuffing (leftovers)
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- flour, for dredging
- breadcrumbs, for dredging
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying (may need more or less)
Sauce if not using leftover gravy
- 1 (12 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup (1 can)
- 1⁄2 cup 2% low-fat milk
- Mix the turkey, stuffing, and eggs well. Refrigerate 3 hours minimum.
- Create a 'log' shape from about 3/4 cup of mixture. Then gently drop onto the counter to flatten the bottom. (about 3" high, 2" in diameter).
- Roll the croquettes in flour, then bread crumbs. Fry in oil in deep skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until golden brown on all sides and bottom, about 10-15 minutes. Keep warm in 200 degree Fahrenheit oven.
- Sauce: (or you can use leftover gravy) Meanwhile, mix the can of soup with the half cup milk in a saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until warmed and creamy.
- Pour over croquettes or serve sauce on the side. Traditionally served atop mashed potatoes for a wonderful presentation.
I loved this recipe, so glad I tried it. Sorry I didn't rate sooner!
Not bad. They didn't hold together real well and maybe if the turkey had been finely shredded they would have or perhaps add another egg. I didn't use soup over them either.
