Lovely on a winter's night. I also used ground turkey, and had to add extra panko to get my croquettes for hold their shape. Handle with care in the pan, but if they do fall apart a little, they are just as delicious. My new immersion blender made short work of the soup. Served with warm smoked cheddar-bacon drop biscuits from CL.
Roasted Squash Soup with Turkey Croquettes

I made this with canned turkey (Yes, canned turkey!) which I chopped in the food processor. Had no onions, so used scallions. Served store-bought butternut squash soup separately and had the croquettes as the main course. We made 9 small croquettes (12 would be more suited to the soup floaters) and served three per person. They looked quite cute. Very tasty. However, I question the nutritional info. Can that be right? It is extremely high in fat and carbs if the info provided is in fact per serving and not for the whole recipe. Using the Weight Watchers formula, that comes out to 15 points per serving and that is NOT a light recipe in my book.

Very good winter soup --- even when I subbed ground for regular turkey. I'd give it four stars if it hadn't turned out to be more work/mess than I anticipated.
