There were very few leftovers in my home during my early youth. The servants all had “toting” privileges, which they took advantage of to feed themselves, their children, and animals. If there were leftovers, however, from chicken or turkey, the meat was almost invariably turned into croquettes. The recommendation to serve mushroom sauce with these croquettes is my own idea. We did not have access to fresh mushrooms during my childhood.
