Every Thanksgiving we buy a turkey to cook on Black Friday or the weekend after. Even though we usually enjoy dinner with family on Thanksgiving Day, we always plan to make our own turkey, along with my grandma’s homemade rolls and all the fixin’s. It’s sorta become a family tradition. Of course, we have a ton of leftovers afterward, so turkey sandwiches on homemade rolls are a given for the next day or two. One year instead of ordinary sandwiches, I tried something new and different, Turkey and Stuffing Crescents. They turned out to be a delicious holiday treat. You could always make these with leftover ham too.
How to Make Turkey and Stuffing Crescents
The first step is to gather your ingredients. You’ll need Pillsbury Crescents, turkey, stuffing, and cheese. When I first made these, I used American cheese, but anymore I’d rather use cheddar or pepper jack. Take each crescent, and add a quarter slice of cheese, a bite of stuffing, and a small pile of turkey. Roll each crescent up, per instructions on the can. They’ll probably be a bit bulky and might not be quite as pretty as they normally would, but that’s ok; they’ll still taste amazing.
Finally, pop them in the oven and bake as usual, per the instructions on the can. When you take them out of the oven, they’re best eaten while warm. Mmmm…. Happy Leftover Season!
