I am a huge leftovers fan so when a recipe arrived in my inbox from Marks & Spencer recently, it immediately caught my attention. With turkey season imminent, this was one I just had to share (and who doesn’t love leftover stuffing?!).
INGREDIENTS – SERVES 16
· 300g mashed potatoes
· 250g cooked turkey
· 150g leftover stuffing
· 2 tbsp fresh parsley
· 2 tbsp plain flour
· 1large egg
· 75g dried white breadcrumbs
· sunflower oil
· 4 tbsp cranberry sauce
Finely chop the cooked turkey. Crumble the leftover stuffing. Chop the fresh parsley. Beat the eggs.
1 In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potato, turkey, stuffing and parsley with some salt and freshly ground black pepper, until combined.
2 Shape the mixture into 16 croquettes, then cover and chill for 30 minutes.
3 Put the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 bowls.
4 Dip each croquette first in the flour, then the egg and finally coat in the breadcrumbs
5 Pour 1cm depth of oil into a large non-stick frying pan and set it over a medium heat until hot.
6 Cook the croquettes in batches, turning occasionally until golden brown on all sides and piping hot inside.
7 Drain each batch on kitchen paper.
8 Serve with cranberry sauce for dipping.
