Thanksgiving Leftover Pockets

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Sneaking out to the kitchen late at night and cutting a sweet Hawaiian roll in half, then cramming turkey, stuffing, and gravy in there, then settling down to eat it slowly while reading a good book? Yep, that’s my idea of heaven. This year, up your post-Thanksgiving game by taking those same ingredients put putting them in pockets of light, crispy puff pastry.

Start by mixing the turkey, stuffing, and gravy together in a bowl.

Set the bowl aside, dust your counter with a handful of flour, and roll out one of the sheets of puff pastry until it’s 14″x14″.

Cut the puff pastry sheet into 4 squares, brush the edges of each square with water, and place 1/2 cup of filling in the center of each square. Then fold the corners into the center, pressing to seal the edges together.

Repeat with the remaining sheet of puff pastry, then place all puff pastry pockets on a baking sheet. Brush tops of each pocket with butter.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until tops are golden brown.
