Coat the turkey with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper and put into a roasting pan. Transfer to the oven and roast until warmed through. Let cool. Combine the celery, onion, sage leave and thyme in a stockpot and sweat in a little olive oil. Add the bread and the stock and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool. Transfer to a large bowl.
Heat the oil in a deep-fryer.
Dice the turkey and add, along with the mashed potatoes, to the stuffing bowl. Form the mixture into medium-sized balls and fry in the deep-fryer until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve on a serving platter.
