Baked Turkey Croquettes

I shouldn't be posting this in the spring time because it's ideally the perfect post-Thanksgiving meal to use with your leftover turkey & mashed potatoes. So bookmark this and bust it out in November, please.

3/4 lb of turkey (cooked & shredded thin)
3 potatoes, peeled, cooked, & mashed
3/4 cup fat free chicken broth
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
salt & pepper, to taste
fat free olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mash potatoes in with 1/4 cup of the broth.
Add salt & pepper.
In a medium sauce pan, heat oil on low heat. 
Saute garlic & onions for a few minutes. Add parsley, more salt & pepper, and cook until soft for a few more minutes. Add turkey and remaining broth.
Mix well, then remove from heat.
Then add the turkey to the mashed potatoes. 
Use your hands to mix them together.
Add more salt if needed.
Scoop out the mixture, 1/4 cup at a time and form the oval croquettes.
Place each on waxed paper. 
Meanwhile, break & whisk egg and dip each croquette into the egg wash. From there dip into the breadcrumbs that are placed in a shallow dish.
Then place on a lined cookie sheet (parchment or tin foil). Spray with olive oil spray generously. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
