You need a can of biscuits:

Roll them thin with a little flour and place some turkey, dressing and gravy on top. Before the gravy:

This one had turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce:

Seal them up:

Bake in oven or egg at 375 degrees for 17 minutes.
Came out perfect to hold in your hand and no mess whatsoever. Just make sure not to put too much liquid stuff inside.

The disinterested teenager liked them, and he doesn't like leftovers.

    That was outstanding! How many biscuits did you roll together to make each one?
  • Bob, I used one biscuit, but rolled them out pretty thin, maybe a 5 or 6 inches in diameter.

    Faith .. I hope you don't mind if I copy that. I've been thinking of a way to take left over turkey and fixings to work without making a big mess. Looks like you nailed it, thanks!
  • Awesome and creative! But at my house, there's usually no leftovers, except bones..... too many teenagers come to our holidays.

    I gotta try that turn-over idea with **something stuffed inside** soon!

    Gonna try that tomorrow, great idea Faith
  • I came up with the idea during our "stuffed" throwdown last year. I think you can fill it will all kinds of good things.

    Here is the original post about the "Stuffed" stuff:

    I want to make some for an upcoming tailgate, maybe fill with sloppy joe meat??

  • Faith, what a good idea! :) Those would great to serve during a football game!

    Faith, looks delicious; we've been doing cold turkey sandwiches only, & I've got one more day of leftovers left tomorrow. No biscuit dough though I suppose pizza dough would work - great idea, thanks. Marc

    to tell me that the kitchen would look like a snow storm, but great idea. Your reward is in the mail. LOL

  • Richard, my kitchen wasn't messy at all. I got flour on 1 dinner plate -I used about 1 heaping Tbsp. flour for each turnover.

  • Marc, I'm sure pizza dough would work. My leftovers are all gone now!
