|First Four Hot Croquettes|

Our son, Steve and his youngest boy Max came for an after Thanksgiving visit. We had plenty of left over turkey from yesterday, so I decided to fix an old favorite for dinner.
Friday after Thanksgiving, most people who cooked a turkey will have some left over.
My favorite recipe takes time, Swiss Turkey Enchiladas, and you might enjoy viewing it at: Turkey Day NOT. This is a delicious meal and it is excellent to freeze the extra ones.
But today I will share something a bit more simple and we always enjoyed this turkey left over version.
Steve does not like onions so I left out the onions. I had just picked some fresh chard from our garden, so we served it and some mashed potatoes with the Croquettes.
Today I left out the salt, and celery salt. They were seasoned nicely because of the stuffing mix that I crushed had seasoning and herbs in it.
CROQUETTES (Poultry, Fish or other meat)
3 T butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/2 cup onion chopped
2 cups chopped turkey or other meat.
Soda crackers crushed place in a pan (I used stuffing mix chopped in processor)1 egg beaten with 2 T of milk in another pan.
Make a white sauce in a pan using the butter, flour and milk. Add onion, seasons, meat and mix well. Chill, then shape into 10 patties. Dip in bread mix, then in egg, then in crumbs. Fry in hot oil until brown on both sides, Drain on paper towel. Place on cookie sheet and into oven on low until all the croquettes are done. Serve Hot.
