Easy Turkey Leftover Recipe
Turn your leftover holiday turkey meal into another fantastic meal just by adding our delicious Krinos feta. Our Leftover Turkey and Feta Croquettes recipe makes use of your leftover mashed potatoes, veggies, and turkey.
Croquettes originated in France and featured a warm, potato centre. Our croquette recipe features a warm feta centre and topped with leftover gravy for extra flavour. Croquette means “crunch”, so one thing’s for sure: we’ll make sure yours do, too.
To start, pre-heat your over to 400 F, and collect your leftovers. You need 3 cups of mashed potato (you can also add left over mashed root veggies to your potatoes) and 1 cup of finely chopped cooked turkey. You can double your batch if you have a lot of leftovers.
In a small skillet, heat 2 tbsp of butter and oil over medium heat. Sauté 1 diced onion until golden. Add 1 tbsp of fresh, chopped sage, 1 clove of chopped garlic and sauté until fragrant. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, combine onion mixture with the leftover mashed potatoes and turkey. Mix well.
Cut feta into 1 cm sticks, small enough to fit in a croquette. Scoop about ¼ cup of potato-turkey mix and mold around the piece of feta. Continue until all ingredients are used.
In a shallow dish, mix breadcrumbs with 2 tbsp of melted butter. In separate shallow dishes, have 1 beaten egg and ½ cup of flour, respectively. Roll croquettes into flour, followed by egg and finally breadcrumbs, to coat.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. (It’s ideal if you can prepare the croquettes and refrigerate for an hour before baking.) Serve with leftover cranberry sauce, turkey gravy or a dollop of sour cream.
