cabinet hinge repairs

OK a dog pulled a cabinet door out by the hinges. The top hinges came off totally leaving two big holes on the cabinet side wall. The bottom came off half way and when I tried to get it off it broke off with that green insert stuck inside.

First, what is the best way to remove that stuck green insert? use a small hole saw to drill it out?

Once I have them out I guess I will fill the holes with two part structural epoxy and attach new hinges to the epoxy?

They make a special screw extractor that is basically like a small reverse hole saw.

I would recommend PC11 2 part epoxy. PC11 is white. Paint wood hardener on/in the holes first. When you apply the epoxy, be sure you smear it around the hole enough to coat the particle board. And try to avoid air pockets when you fill the void by poking it in and out with a toothpick or similar before you smooth it off.
