These are the turkey croquettes my Mom always made after we had a turkey dinner. They are cheese, onion, sage, and turkey all rolled into a golden fried croquette. Yum!
4 cups shredded leftover turkey
1 stick (8 tbsp) butter
1 medium onion, diced
4 tbsp flour
2 cups milk
12 oz cheddar cheese, grated
salt, pepper, sage to taste
dried breadcrumbs and eggs for coating
vegetable oil for frying
– melt butter in saucepan
– add onions and saute until translucent
– add flour and cook for 1 min.
– gradually add in milk, stirring constantly
– add cheese and allow mixture to thicken, stirring to prevent sticking on the bottom
– add salt, pepper, and sage to taste
– remove from heat and stir in turkey
– chill until set enough to form a croquette
– shape turkey mixture into desired size croquettes
– roll in breadcrumbs, then egg, then back in breadcrumbs
– fry in oil until golden brown, turning once if necessary
– remove from oil and drain on paper towel
This is my quick & easy go-to chilli recipe. It takes about 30-60min to cook and tastes great.
The ingredient list is short, but you can add or substitute whatever you like. I usually serve this with rice, a baked potato, some corn chips or just on its own with some grated cheese. This chilli recipe also freezes well, so I often make a double batch and then freeze individual portions for later.
Chilli Recipe — Serves 4-6:
1 onion, chopped
1 pepper (any colour), chopped
500g ground/mince beef

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 x 420g tins diced tomatoes
1 x 400g tin red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
– Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and saute until onion has softened.
– Add beef mince and stir until browned.
– Add tomato paste and mix in well. Then add chilli seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and mix.
– Add tinned tomatoes and kidney beans and stir well.

Please note: If you are going to simmer longer than 30 minutes, then reduce heat to low or add more liquid (tomato sauce or an extra tin of tomatoes).
