Betty demonstrates how to make flavorful Turkey Croquettes. This is a wonderful recipe for using leftover turkey (or chicken).
1 ½ inches oil in pot, heated to 350 degrees (F) when croquettes are ready to fry
4 cups cooked turkey (or chicken), half white meat and half dark meat, coarsely chopped
1 cup mushrooms, coarsely chopped
2 cups fine, dry breadcrumbs
1 ½ cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon finely chopped onion
½ cup melted butter
½ cup finely chopped celery
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
In a large bowl, soak breadcrumbs in broth. Grind turkey (or chicken) and mushrooms. (I used a food processor.) Add ground mixture to bowl of soaked breadcrumbs. Also add onion, butter, celery, salt, lemon juice, red pepper, and parsley. Stir well. Shape into 1 ½-inch croquettes and chill for 1 to 2 hours.
2 cups fine, dry breadcrumbs in shallow dish
egg wash, consisting of 1 beaten egg, plus 2 tablespoons water, in shallow dish
Dip chilled croquettes into breadcrumbs, then into egg wash, then into breadcrumbs again. Fry in 1 ½ inches oil. Remove croquettes when browned. Place on paper toweling to drain. Transfer to nice serving dish. Serve while hot. I hope you enjoy this recipe; it's something different to try with your leftover Thanksgiving turkey! Love, --Betty ♥♥♥
