Step 1

Cold ingredients work best, otherwise, you may need to refrigerate mixture prior to frying. I grind my cooked turkey with a meat grinder to give a nice uniform consistency - works great for croquettes.

Mix together turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, Poultry Seasoning, salt and pepper until smooth.

Beat eggs with 1 to 2 tablespoons cold water.

Form balls with turkey mixture approximately 1 1/2-inches diameter.

Roll balls in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs, then place on a sheet of foil until all balls are ready.

Oil should be deep enough for frying, approximately 1/2-inch. Heat over medium-high heat.

Carefully place balls in hot oil, flatten slightly. Brown well, then turn over and brown opposite side. Place on paper towels to drain excess oil.

Serve with additional heated gravy and enjoy!
