Thanksgiving Leftover Turnovers

Thanksgiving is my favorite meal (and day as a whole) of the year for so many reasons. One of them is all of those amazing leftovers! I think all of that turkey, stuffing, and gravy gets even better the next day. The flavors develop even more. Putting them into a sandwich together is classic, but I thought I would use up the puff pastry I had in my freezer. So I put together these incredible Thanksgiving leftover turnovers! They came together in less than 30 minutes and could not be easier.

Using thawed out puff pastry made these Thanksgiving leftover turnovers a cinch to put together! I rolled out my sheet a little more to make it wider and thinner. Then I cut it in half lengthwise.

Then I brought the other sides of the sheets over and crimped the edges together tightly. A fork made the edge prettier and more finished looking. To finish them I brushed a lightly beaten egg all over, especially around the edges. That was all there was to forming the Thanksgiving leftover turnovers! I baked them at 350 for 20 minutes to get them golden and glorious.

It was so buttery and flaky and the perfect vehicle for all of that yumminess. I didn’t even feel like I was eating leftovers because these Thanksgiving leftover turnovers were such a fun, new way of eating them. Just one more reason to love Thanksgiving, friends. Enjoy! xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed

  • 1 cup leftover stuffing or dressing divided
  • 4 tablespoons leftover turkey gravy
  • 1 whole egg lightly beaten
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Take the puff pastry sheet and cut it in half lengthwise. Lightly press each half out to be a little wider. Pile half of the turkey on one side of the sheet, leaving a border. Add the stuffing and gravy on top of the turkey. Bring the other half of the sheet over and crimp the edges together well. Repeat the process on the other puff pastry sheet with the remain turkey, stuffing and gravy.
  2. Brush the beaten egg all over the turnover, especially around the edges to help seal them. Transfer both turnovers to the lined sheet and bake them for about 20 minutes. The puff pastry will become golden and glorious. Serve them immediately and enjoy your Thanksgiving leftovers in a delectable puff pastry package!
