Leftover Turkey Dinner Pockets

Wow! I can't believe how busy this fall and winter has been. My new job is cutting about 5 extra hours out of my free time each week and weekends are spent on various river projects. The goal is to have our little get-a-way cabin complete by Spring and we are well on the way to making that happen. Right now that's been a priority but all the other things I enjoy in life have had to take a back seat unfortunately.

These dinner pockets are my take on a what to do with leftovers type post I saw several months ago on Facebook. They are very easy to make and you can make use of what's left in those little bowls after a holiday meal.
Leftover Turkey Dinner Pockets
  • 1 8 count can Jumbo biscuits
  • 2/3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1/3 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1-1/4 cups diced cooked turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. Water
  • 1 cup turkey gravy, warmed
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Beat egg and mix water.
Separate biscuits. On a floured surface, flatten/roll out each biscuit into a thin round. Place 1 teaspoon of mashed potatoes, ½ teaspoon cranberry sauce and a few pieces of turkey in the center of the round. Brush with egg wash around the edges.
Fold edges up and over filling. Pinch to seal turkey pocket. Place on cookie sheet. Once all biscuits are filled; brush tops with remaining egg wash.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with warm gravy.
