For the croquettes:

  • 2 Cups leftover turkey, finely minced
  • 1 Cup leftover seasoned mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup Manchego cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

For the coating:

  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 Cups fresh breadcrumbs, finely ground

For the aioli:

  • 1 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Cup orange juice
  • 1/4 Cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • Pinch of Spanish saffron
  • Oil, for frying

Preparation

Directions

For the croquettes:

Combine the turkey, mashed potatoes, cheese, parsley, and black pepper. Shape croquette mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed paper or foil-lined cookie sheet.

For the coating:

Roll the croquettes gently in the flour to coat, then in the egg until fully coated. Then, coat with the breadcrumbs. Place coated croquettes back on cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining turkey mixture and crumbs.

For the aioli:

Combine the mayonnaise, orange juice, soy sauce, garlic, pepper, and saffron, and let the mixture set for 2 hours.

After the aioli sets, heat the oil in a pot until it reaches 360 degrees F. Fry the croquettes in small batches until golden brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the saffron orange aioli.
