Quick Fix: Thanksgiving Fritters

1/2 cup cranberry sauce

1/2 cup tomato salsa

2 cups mashed potatoes

1 cup stuffing

1 cup chopped cooked vegetables

11/2 cups chopped turkey meat (or more)

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup minced onion

2 eggs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 cup bread crumbs

2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 200 F.

In a small saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce and salsa. Mix well and bring to a simmer over low heat. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, turkey meat, parsley, onion, eggs, salt, pepper and paprika. Mix well. Place the breadcrumbs in a large, shallow bowl.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high. With lightly floured hands, form about 1/3 cup of mashed potato mixture into a patty, then set it in bowl of bread crumbs, turning it to lightly coat both sides.

One or two at a time, place patties in the skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Transfer fritters to a baking sheet and place into he oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Serve fritters with warm cranberry salsa. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
