Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Croquettes

I love getting creative with Thanksgiving leftovers!  This was a cinch to put together and was fun to eat.  Little croquettes were filled with turkey, mashed potatoes, and green beans; rolled in flax meal; and then pan fried on a griddle.  I served them with leftover cranberry sauce.  So fun and tasty at the same time!

All the flavors of Thanksgiving day in a little patty

1c chopped leftover cooked turkey
1c leftover mashed potatoes
1/4c chopped leftover green beans
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/4c flax seed meal
olive oil for pan frying
leftover cranberry sauce

1. In a large bowl, mix turkey, potatoes, green beans, and egg.
2. Roll into small golf ball sized balls.
3. On a cutting board, spread flax meal.  Roll balls in the meal and then flatten into croquettes.
4. Heat a griddle or a flat pan with oil over medium high.  Cook each croquette until browned on each side and hot in the middle, about 4-5 minuets per side.  Serve warm with cranberry sauce.
