Leftover Turkey Recipes: Turkey Croquettes

These turkey croquettes are a delicious way to reboot leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I served them with an Avocado dipping sauce (homemade guacamole) and sauteed Asparagus. They make a great meal or snack and will keep well in the refrigerator for a few days– if they last long enough that is!


2lbs or 4 cups leftover cooked turkey finely chopped

3 Serrano peppers deseeded and finely chopped

1 cup chopped scallions

3 tablespoons fresh cilantro roughly chopped

3 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs (substitute brown rice flour or gluten free Panko crumbs to make gluten free croquettes)

4 large organic eggs

3/4 teaspoon cumin powder

3/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Extra virgin olive oil


Mix together all ingredients except for olive oil and form into 2.5 inch round patties. Brown both sides of patty in pre-heated olive oil until golden brown in color (about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes per side on medium low heat) then transfer to paper towel lined tray). Serve with your favorite veggie. Enjoy!
