Leftovers Remade: Thanksgiving Dinner Crescent Ring
Italian grinder ring, and one stuffed with scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese . This one - surprise surprise! - was stuffed with Thanksgiving leftovers! Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, veggies, gravy - whatever you want to use up. It's pretty quick - you're eating dinner in 30 minutes, tops. And then throwing out the remnants of your Thanksgiving dinner because it's been days and your family is begging you to stop forcing turkey and mashed potatoes on them :) On to new recipes tomorrow!
Thanksgiving dinner crescent ring
2 tubes crescent dinner rolls
2 cups mashed potatoes
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped
1 cup vegetables of your choice (I used squash, peas, and carrots)
1 cup stuffing
1/2 cup cranberry sauce
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll crescents and spray a large pizza pan with nonstick baking spray. Place the longer end of the crescents in a circle onto the edge of the pan. Leave a circle in the center with all the crescent points laying over the outside edge of the pan, all the way around the pizza pan, to create a sun-like ring of crescents.
2) Spoon mashed potatoes, turkey, vegetables, stuffing and cranberry sauce on top of the large ends of the crescents. Pull the pointed edges of the crescents up and over the filling. Gently tuck each crescent lip underneath the inside end of the crescent ring to secure.
3) Bake for 18 - 22 minutes, to until the crescents are golden brown. Cool slightly before slicing and serving.
