This recipe transforms leftover turkey and mashed potatoes into crispy patties for an easy day-after-Thanksgiving breakfast. The turkey is shredded, and diced carrot, onion, and celery give the patties a little extra crunch and flavor. Serve these topped with a fried egg and hot sauce in the morning, or next to some Braised Brussels Sprouts or a simple salad for an easy dinner that doesn’t taste like microwaved leftovers.
Game plan: This recipe was developed with Thanksgiving in mind, but it would work just as well with shredded roasted chicken.
The patties can be formed up to 24 hours in advance. Follow the recipe through step 2, cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until you’re ready to cook the patties.
