New life to leftovers - Baked Turkey Croquettes

So I got snowed in yesterday from the storm and found an excellent opportunity to make these after reading SkinnyTaste.com.  And they turned out pretty good!  I think my only criticism is that I didn't add enough salt.  I almost never make mashed potatoes or anything potatoes so I guess I didn't realize that I have to be generous with the salt. 


ANyhoo, this would be super easy to make if you already have leftover mashed potatoes but I had to make them from scratched (we eat rice with our turkey during the holidays).  I made two batched, one turkey heavy and another potato heavy.  Both turned out great! and since they weren't too salty, I used some gravy as a dipping sauce.  DH was very very happy!  Give it a try!

** the dork in me realizes that the title should be "New Life for Leftovers."  In my defense, I originally wrote "Bringing New Life to Leftovers" but shortened it to include the dish name.

Oh my gosh, these look amazing! I'm going to have to try them... Think I could substitute chicken instead of turkey?

Do you think they would work with ground turkey?
