Description

This is a great recipe to use up leftover turkey or chicken. It does not taste anything like leftovers. Makes about six 2-inch croquette balls. Definitely need to double or triple recipe for large groups as I can eat 2 croquettes easily.

Ingredients
  • 2 slices bread, or more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups diced cooked turkey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten
Directions
  1. 1. Place bread in a blender and blend until soft crumbs form. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.
  2. 2. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted. Stir flour into melted butter until dissolved. Mix milk and broth into butter-flour mixture; cook and stir until mixture is thick, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool mixture.
  3. 3. Mix turkey, parsley, rosemary, salt, and pepper into cooled mixture. Form turkey mixture into balls. Place balls on a plate and refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours.
  4. 4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. 5. Dip balls in the beaten egg, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Press balls into bread crumbs until coated. Arrange balls on a baking sheet.
  6. 6. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
