I had some leftover turkey, dressing and gravy and I didn't want the same old boring leftovers. This is what I came up with. This can be doubled very easily. You can even use chicken instead. For the dressing use your favorite. Posted August 29th 2005.
- 1 cup leftover cooked turkey, cubed
- 1 1⁄2 cups turkey stuffing
- 1 1⁄4 cups turkey gravy
- 1⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
- oil (for frying)
- Mix together turkey, dressing, and enough gravy to hold mixture together. If needed add enough bread crumbs to be able to make patty shaped.
- In a medium sized skillet, heat oil until hot but not smoking.
- Shape turkey mixture into two patties.
- Add to skillet, fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side.
- Remove to serving plate, add rest of warmed up gravy over patties.
Made this with some left over chicken and gravy. The first time it feel apart, so for the second attempt I added and egg to bind and it held up just fine. Thanks for the recipe! I will be sure to make again!
Wonderful use of leftover Thanksgiving dinner! I did add the egg to hold it together and that was the only change I made. The flavors we just like the day before but much less work. Served over mashed potatoes. I can see us doing this again soon! Thanks Shapeweaver for yet another keeper!
These were sensational, I roasted a whole turkey breast, with bread stuffing on the side, had leftovers ,,,,made them exactly as printed and my fiancee went nuts, I browned them real well and served with mashed tators and mushroom gravy. Made a nice apple cake for dessert. Thanks for the great idea,,,NOW why dint I think of that :)
