Servings: 5

• 1 package Honeysuckle White Breast Strips
• 2 ribs celery, diced
• 6 green onions, diced
• 1 red pepper, roasted, chopped
• 2 tsp. lemon juice, fresh
• 3 Tbsp. parsley, fresh, chopped
• 2 tsp. poultry seasoning
• salt to taste
• black pepper, freshly ground to taste
• 1/4 cup cranberry sauce, whole or jellied
• 2 eggs, beaten (we used one cup egg substitute)
• 1 cup cracker crumbs

Instructions:
Prepare a large skillet with non-stick spray. Add the turkey strips and cook, turning often, until no longer pink in the center. Remove from the pan to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, dice the turkey strips into small pieces. In a large bowl, combine the celery, red pepper, green onions, lemon juice, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, turkey, cranberry sauce, and eggs (we used egg substitute).

Mix well. Cover the bowl and chill for at least 45 minutes. Shape the croquette mixture into 10 ovals, roll in cracker crumbs, and place on a (we used cooking oil spray) greased baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, or until golden. Serve with hot low fat gravy. This recipe also works well with leftover turkey. Use about 6 cups diced, cooked turkey.
