Yield: 4-6 servings

Dish Size: Lid-It®




  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup turkey broth
  • 2 cups leftover turkey, finely chopped
  • ½ cup stuffing (if you don’t have leftover stuffing, increase turkey)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • olive or canola oil, to sauté croquettes
  • cranberry sauce or gravy, for dipping




  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt butter, then stir in flour and seasonings. Cook for 2-3 minutes to give flour a chance to cook off.
  2. Whisk in broth and cook, stirring frequently, until mixture is thick and bubbly.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in turkey and stuffing. Mixture will be very thick. Place in fridge to cool completely, at least 1 hour.
  4. While turkey mixture is cooling set up a breading station with flour, panko, and eggs.
  5. Form turkey mixture into small patties. Roll in flour, coat in egg, then roll in Panko. Work quickly or turkey mixture will get sticky.
  6. In a large sauté pan heat canola or olive oil over medium heat.
  7. Fry croquettes until lightly browned on both sides.
  8. Serve on a temp-tations® Lid-It® with leftover cranberry sauce or gravy.
