Holiday Leftovers: Turkey-Potato Patties by The Sweet Spot Blog

Turkey-Potato Patties

3 TBSP unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion, minced
1 1/2 tsp fresh sage, minced
1 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, minced
2 cups cooked turkey, finely chopped
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup mashed potatoes
1/4 cup flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Vegetable oil, for frying
Cranberry sauce, for serving

1. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.  Add onion, 1 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper.  Cook for 3 minutes.  Stir in sage and thyme, and cook for 1 more minute.  Stir in turkey and cream, and cook until liquid evaporates, about 1 minute.  Transfer to a large bowl, and let cool for 15 minutes.

2. Add mashed potatoes, flour, and egg to turkey, and season with salt and black pepper.

3. Drop 2 TBSP turkey mixture into a shallow bowl of breadcrumbs, turn to coat, and pat into 2-inch disks.  Arrange into a single layer on a baking sheet, and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

4. Heat 1/4 inch oil in a frying pan over medium heat.  Working in batches, cook patties in a single layer until dark, golden brown (about 2 minutes per side).  Transfer to paper towels to drain.  Serve immediately with cranberry sauce.

For Christmas or Easter leftovers, substitute the turkey for ham!

    Throughout this awesome scheme of things you’ll secure a B+ with regard to hard work. Exactly where you lost me personally was on the details. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct at this point. Having said that, permit me say to you just what did work. The text is definitely very powerful which is most likely the reason why I am taking the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can certainly notice a jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really confident of just how you appear to unite your ideas that make your conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your point however hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect your facts much better.
