Turkey-Potato Cakes

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by cuisinebymae

These are golden and crispy, such a great way to use leftover turkey. Good with ketchup, or cranberry sauce. Could even be used in a bun like a hamburger.

This was pretty good. To avoid needing to go shopping to make this, I used what I had in the house already. So I used left over roasted chicken instead of the turkey. I wanted my toddler to have veggies so I shreaded cabbage that I need to use up in it as well with little bit of parsley. I didn't have what I think are green onions (not a gourmet chef), so I just used what I guess is just called yellow onions. My only concern about this recipe, unless I misunderstood the directions, is the amount of cooking oil needed to make it. I used olive oil, as that is what I had in the house and I think, from what I have seen, that may be healthier of the oils. Not sure. My toddler seemed to enjoy the taste of it and this was a good way to get him to eat eggs as he doesn't seem to like regularly cooked eggs. Thank you for the recipe.
