makes about 24 (2-inch) croquettes
Seamus Mullen, chef/owner of New York's Tertulia, shared this recipe exclusively with Epicurious. These croquettes put a Thanksgiving spin on a dish from Tertulia’s Spanish menu. In addition to using leftover turkey meat, Mullen's recipe also takes care of any extra mashed potatoes and stuffing, and he suggests serving the croquettes with leftover gravy or cranberry sauce. "Don't worry about being too precise with amounts," insists the chef. "The beauty in cooking leftovers is improvisation."
