Thanksgiving Fritters (leftovers)

Post by jimbob » Fri Nov 16, 2007 10:10 am

THANKSGIVING FRITTERS
Start to finish: 30 minutes

1/2 cup cranberry sauce

1/2 cup tomato salsa

2 cups mashed potatoes

1 cup stuffing

1 cup chopped cooked vegetables

11/2 cups chopped turkey meat (or more)

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup minced onion

2 eggs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 tsp. smoked paprika

1 cup breadcrumbs

2 Tbsps. canola or vegetable oil
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a small saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce and salsa. Mix well and bring to a simmer over low heat.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, turkey meat, parsley, onion, eggs, salt, pepper and paprika. Mix well. Place the breadcrumbs in a large, shallow bowl.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high. With lightly floured hands, form about 1/3 cup of the mashed potato mixture into a patty, then set it in the bowl of breadcrumbs, turning it to lightly coat both sides.

One or two at a time, place the patties in the skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Transfer the fritters to a baking sheet and place into the oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Serve fritters with warm cranberry salsa. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

That's an interesting recipe. Are they really good? Not sure I can buy smoked paprika though. :dunno:

somebody that knows that I like to cook, sent this in an email

looking at the ingrediants...I'd say they will be very good.

no spice shops near where you live ?

Also I was thinking of using hushpuppy mix instead of breadcrumbs on the outside.....
:cool:
