Leftover mashed potatoes have to be the least appetizing of Thanksgiving leftovers, but not in these charming fitters. Garnish with cranberry sauce, and you have a perfect lunch.
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 ½ cups shredded turkey white meat
¼ cup milk
Freshly ground black pepper
½ cup panko
1 tablespoon oil
½ cup cranberry sauce
Combine the potatoes, turkey, and milk in a medium-size mixing bowl. Season to taste with freshly-ground black pepper.
Heat the oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat.
Form the turkey mixture into patties and coat with panko. Fry on each side until browned and cooked through. Serve with cranberry sauce and a big green salad on the side.
