A perfect alternative to turkey tetrazzini for Thanksgiving leftovers. Your leftover mashed potatoes won't go to waste either!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine turkey, onions, 1 1/2 cups of the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, tarragon, sage, Worcestershire sauce, and egg.
  2. Fold in the mashed potatoes, and then add just enough stock to bind the mixture into balls (about 2-3 inch each).
  3. Roll each ball in the remaining bread crumbs, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. (At this point you may freeze them for a later day).
  5. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Makes about 16 croquettes.
  7. Serve with gravy, if desired.

I love croquettes and was hoping this would be a treat I could share with my family. I am sorry to say I did not like it at all.

Very good. I baked them without gravy, and added the gravy afterward. Next time I am going to bake them with the gravy.
