We all have a favourite apple recipe, right? A standby recipe that we make every single fall. Well, this year I decided to switch things up and make a recipe that takes advantage of another fall favourite – leftover roast turkey.
Speaking of switching things up, how do you love my JORD Wood Watch? Yes, it’s made of wood. I haven’t worn a wrist watch in years. I used to love wearing a watch so when the folks at Jord reached out with this beautiful line of unique watches I couldn’t resist. I selected the zebra wood and navy model, as I thought it would fit perfectly with my outdoorsy fall wardrobe. Watch back, firmly on my wrist. Now, back to this amazingly simple leftover turkey hand pie recipe.
What is everyone’s favourite part of Thanksgiving dinner at our house? The stuffing of course (or dressing, depending on how you prepare it). This recipe combines all those familiar turkey stuffing flavours in a handy hand pie.
These are perfect for the kids’ lunch box or serve them with a salad and you have a quick dinner. They take 30 minutes to make and taste amazing.
Tasty Leftover Turkey Hand Pies
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/2 – 1 cup chopped toasted turkey
1/2 cup chopped apple
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 sheet ready made puff pastry
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 large egg
Combine chopped celery, carrot, apple, turkey and thyme in a bowl – toss and set aside.
Roll out sheet of puff pastry on a floured surface. Use a sharp knife to cut the the pastry into 4 large squares.
Pile 1/4 of the veggie and turkey mixture and shredded cheese in one corner of the puff pastry square.
Fold one half of the square over the filling, to create a triangle. Pinch the egg edge together. Fold in any excess pastry. Cut a single slit in the top of the pastry triangle. Place the pies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Brush the remaining egg over the pastry and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Let cool and enjoy.
