|Mashed Potato and Turkey Croquettes|
|Bread crumbs, turkey leg, eggs and maybe 2 cups of mashed potatoes|
|mix mashed potatoes, an egg, and some left over turkey|
|prepare your station with mixture, egg and a splash of milk, bread crumbs, and tray|
|I used a muffin/cookie dough scoop to measure out even portions of potato mixture|
|Shape each portion into a log, dip in egg, roll in crumbs|
|Chillin' in the fridge for a few hours|
|heating canola oil in a cast iron pan|
Heat enough oil in a large pot so that the oil will come up half way up one of the croquettes. When the oil is heated over medium-high heat, fry a few croquettes at a time, about 90 seconds on each side. Lay finished croquettes on paper towels and keep warm in a 200F oven until all are fried.
|Over medium-high heat and 2 minutes fry time, the outside was too brown and the center a bit cool|
|Reduced the heat a smidge and went for 3 minutes total frying time|
|Following in my Dad's example, I prep/slice fruit for the family at the table after most are finished with their meal|
The family verdict was positive, make these again next time we have left over mashed potatoes. Score!
|My plate - 2 croquettes, mashed sweet potatoes and kale|
