  • step-by-step directions
Leftover Stuffing Croquettes
  • 3 1/2 cups leftover stuffing
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup leftover turkey meat & gravy (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • canola or vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1 recipe Carla's Spicy Cranberry Apple Relish
  • In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, add a few inches of oil. Place over medium-high heat and preheat to 360ºF.
  • In a food processor, add the stuffing. Pulse until stuffing is broken and just shy of smooth. Add the egg and flour, and pulse until combined.
  • Using a large spoon, take a heaping spoonful of the stuffing. Using your thumb, make a deep well into the mixture, place a 2 teaspoons of the turkey gravy mixture in the center. Seal the turkey and gravy into the stuffing mixture. Form into a football shape, using the large spoon.
  • Into a baking dish, add the panko breadcrumbs, roll the formed croquettes in the breadcrumbs, shake off any excess  and gently drop into the preheated oil. Deep fry for 5 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Using a spider, remove croquettes to a paper towel-lined plate. Season with salt immediately.
  • Serve with Carla's Spicy Cranberry Apple Relish.
  • Helpful Tips:
    - The croquettes can be formed ahead of time and placed the refrigerator overnight loosely covered plastic wrap.
    - Lightly oil your hands to prevent sticking.
