  • Oven
  • Large frying pan or wok
  • food processor (optional)


Filling Mix

  • 2 cup finely chopped cooked meat (turkey, chicken, ham, etc.) a food processor helps
  • 1 cup white sauce see below
  • 2 – 3 tbsp green onions finely chopped
  • 2 -3 tbsp Italian flat leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Purely Seasoning Original

White Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp Purely Seasoning Original
  • ½ tsp black pepper coarse ground, or to taste
  • 1 cup whole milk or mix milk and broth

For Forming Croquettes

  • 1 cup flour in shallow bowl
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup fine dried breadcrumbs in shallow bowl


  • Combine the filling ingredients and white sauce. Spread out on plate and chill thoroughly. 
  • Beat the egg and water together, place in shallow bowl.
  • To make the croquettes, spoon up a generous portion (2-3 T depending on desired size) of the filling mix. Form into round or torpedo-shaped patties, roll in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs. Place on baking sheet and chill for a half-hour.
  • Heat 2 inches of oil (I use High Temp oils like avocado and/or grape seed) in a large frying pan (I use a wok) and fry croquettes for 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and crispy.
  • Keep warm in 150º F oven until serving time. 
  • The Croquettes are delicious by themselves. They thrive on being accompanied by cranberry sauce. You could also use leftover gravy or a creamy mushroom sauce but not necessary.
