Recipe type: Appetizers and Snacks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8 pastries
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • ½ cup gravy
  • ½ cup mashed potatoes
  • ½ cup stuffing
  • ¼ cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup diced turkey
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, gruyere, manchego, etc.)
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Unfold each puff pastry sheet on a clean, lightly floured surface, and roll it out gently with a rolling pin to flatten the seams. Cut each sheet into 4 equal squares, so that you have 8 squares total.
  2. In the center of each square, add about a tablespoon of gravy, a tablespoon of leftover mashed potatoes, a tablespoon of stuffing, a dollop of cranberry sauce, some diced turkey, and a sprinkle of cheese. Fold the corners over the seal lightly, and brush lightly with egg wash. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown.
