There was so much food Thursday that I feel like I stuffed myself for the next like 90 days!

I had a lot of leftovers, so on stream we decided to use them and make a ton of leftover dishes!

One of my favorite ones was an amazing baked croquette!

I had never heard of croquettes when I was younger, if I would have known that you could have a breaded potato meal, I would have died and gone to heaven.  

Turkey Croquettes

Seriously.

It is not that hard either, which is amazing, especially if you have spent days cooking for your friends and family for the holidays!  

The turkey we used is in this recipe, so go check it out!
