It's the day after Thanksgiving and I've got a fridge full of leftover turkey, potatoes and gravy! What can you do to use everything so there's no waste, but change it up a bit at the same time? Make Potato Turkey Balls!
Potato Turkey Balls (Makes 18 Balls)
- 2 1/2 Cups <a href=\"http://b12.ba4.myftpupload.com/2009/10/12/yukon-gold-mashed-potatoes/\">Mashed Potatoes</a>
- 2 Large Eggs, whisked in seperate bowls
- 1 Cup <a href=\"http://b12.ba4.myftpupload.com/2010/11/16/maple-brined-turkey/\">Roast Turkey Meat</a>, chopped
- 1 Cup Cheese (Monterrey Jack, Mozzarella, or Cheddar), grated
- 1 Cup Breadcrumbs (white or wholewheat)
Preparation1. Stir the mashed potatoes and 1 whisked egg in a bowl until combined and set aside.
2. In a seperate bowl, combine the chopped turkey meat and grated cheese stirring to combine.
3. Take 2 tsps of the turkey cheese mixture and form into 1 inch balls (you want to roll them tight so the turkey and cheese bind together).
4. Take 2 tbsp of the potato egg mixture and form a patty in the palm of your hand, place a turkey cheese ball in the center and fold the potato mixture around the turkey cheese ball to make a larger ball.
5. Place the second whisked egg in a bowl and the breadcrumbs in a seperate bowl.
6. Roll each potato ball gently into the egg and then into the breadcrumbs covering the balls completely.
7. Fry the potato balls for 60 seconds until the outside is crispy or bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
8. Serve with gravy.
