Air-Fryer Turkey Croquettes

“I grew up with a family that looked forward to Thanksgiving leftovers. But we didn’t just reheat turkey and spuds in the microwave—we took our culinary creativity to a new level with recipes like these air-fryer turkey croquettes. Serve them with a crisp green salad for an unforgettable meal.” —Meredith Coe, Charlottesville, Virginia
