Awesome Turkey Sandwiches with Crunchy Cheesy Potatoes!

Posted on November 23, 2017 with 0 comments

 

Turkey sandwiches!  One of America's great contributions to world cuisine...

I had homemade bread that I'd made for the dressing... I had arugula... I had mayonnaise... and white meat from the Thanksgiving turkey.

Perfect.

But one must have potato chips!  And I had no interest in a trip to the store.  So...

Mashed potato croquettes!!!

I sautéed a bit of scallion, added it to mashed potatoes, tossed in some chives, a bit of flour, a teaspoon of baking powder, an egg, some Parmesan, salt and pepper...  Then I rolled balls of the mixture in flour, then egg, then fresh breadcrumbs (made from some day-old baguette), and fried them in EVOO until puffed and golden brown...

They were served alongside these perfect sandwiches with a dollop of chive sour cream...

Who needs potato chips?!?!?
