After the holidays, when we'd had our fill of turkey sandwiches, Mom would make these croquettes for dinner. This is more of a method than a recipe, so feel free to add or adapt in whatever way you please!


  • 1 cup cooked turkey, ground
  • 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup leftover cold gravy
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • dry breadcrumbs
  • vegetable oil


  • In a bowl, combine the turkey, potatoes and gravy, mixing well.
  • Add salt and pepper if needed. Mixture should stick together; if necessary, add more gravy.
  • Form oblong croquettes, using about 1/3 cup of the mixture for each.
  • Gently roll the croquettes in bread crumbs to coat, then place formed croquettes on a plate. Refrigerate 1/2 hour to allow them to get firm.
  • In a large (preferably non-stick)skillet, heat about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil to almost smoking.
  • Gently place croquettes in pan, being careful to avoid overcrowding.
  • When croquettes are golden on one side, gently turn and finish browning.
  • Remove to a paper towel lined plate before serving.
  • Makes 6-7 croquettes.
  • NOTE: If you wish, a food processor can be used to make this recipe and speed up prep time.
