Turn leftover Thanksgiving turkey into a new meal with a slight kick with these Turkey & Wasabi Mashed Potato Croquettes.
So what do you do when you have leftover turkey? Most people might make soup, but I wanted to try something a little different and came up with these Turkey & Wasabi Mashed Potato Croquettes.
I have been dying to make Wasabi mashed potatoes myself since eating them out in the city (that’s NYC) for my birthday this past February. They’re so easy, I don’t know why I waited so long! Wasabi is essentially a green horseradish that is common in Japanese cooking. Most grocery stores carry it and can be found near the soy sauce isle. I LOVE it, but use too much and it will definitely clear out your sinus’! These were delicious, filling and a great way to use up leftovers. I also liked that they were baked instead of fried in oil, but if you prefer them that way, by all means, fry away. 🙂
