      I didn't have panko, so I used regular bread crumbs. Still came out excellent! I also used a food processor to get the meat very fine and mix the ingredients.

      My husband said 5 stars, these were delicious. The only thing I would do differently next time in put the meat and veges through a grinder or mince them even smaller. I had a hard time keeping the croquettes together. They are crunchy and delicious on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside. I served them with cranberry sauce.

      My husband said this recipe was a 5 star so that's what I'm giving it! I served them with cranberry sauce, mixed veggies and garlic mashed potatoes and there wasn't a crumb left on his plate. I did find that I needed to add more panko to the mixture- maybe 1/2 cup instead of a 1/4 cup to insure the patties would stay together and I didn't have any sage so I added Bell's Seasoning instead. This was a great way to use some of the Thanksgiving turkey and much better than the usual "nuke the leftover turkey" dinners.
