  • For croquettes: In a large bowl, add all of croquette ingredients and combine to distribute ingredients thoroughly; refrigerate for 30 minutes (or longer) before using.
  • Heat 2 tblsps olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Using a tablespoon (dipped in water), scoop out rounded spoonfuls of the croquette mixture and, using another spoon, push the mixture into the hot skillet; continue until you have filled the skillet with turkey croquettes; fry croquettes 5-6 minutes per side, until dark golden-brown; you may need to reduce heat slightly; remove as they are done to a glass baking dish; you will need to fry up in about 2 batches (maybe just into a third, depending on how big your skillet is); keep croquettes warm in a preheated oven while you make up the sauce.
  • For creamy-mushroom sauce: Increase heat under skillet used for cooking croquettes (do not clean it out in any way!) to medium-high and add the sliced mushrooms (do no add any more fat); allow the mushrooms to release some of their liquid and stir up tasty browned bits that are left in the pan from cooking the croquettes; add garlic and sauté mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until all the liquid they have let off has evaporated, about 9-10 minutes; add cream and cook until cream has thickened, about 10 minutes; pour sauce over turkey croquettes, sprinkle with minced fresh parsley and serve with hot buttered rice or noodles; this will make just enough sauce to coat croquettes; if you like loads of sauce, use more mushrooms and cream.

  1. This was just not what we had hoped. It sounded interesting, and I followed the directions to the letter. The croquettes did not have a good texture.. mushy and did not fry crisp. The Mushroom sauce was bland.
  2. This meal was very good. The flavors in the croquettes were a wonderful medley. This is also very filling. We had the croquettes with noodles and a side of green beans but I think next time we'll try rice to make it a bit lighter. Simply delish Evelyn.

<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
