Turkey Leftover Magic

I love Thanksgiving! The cooler weather, leaves falling, family, yummy smells from the kitchen, and of course- leftovers!

Before we moved back to Texas, we celebrated about 4 or 5 Thanksgivings with our dear neighbors and friends Liz and David. Liz owns Thanksgiving, and she also introduced me to the infamous "Turkey Wreath." And for that, I am eternally thankful. Now I look forward to the wreath just about as much as the actual Thanksgiving meal.

Here goes:

2 pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 C. mayonnaise
2 T. honey Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
2 C. cooked turkey, chopped
1/2 C. celery, sliced
3 T. fresh parsley, snipped
1/2 C. dried cranberries
4 oz. Swiss cheese, shredded (1 cup)
1 egg, separated

Preheat oven to 375.

Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. With wide ends of triangles toward the center. arrange 8 triangles in a circle on a baking stone. Make the corners of the wide ends will touch and points will extend over the baking stone.

Measure mayonnaise, mustard and black pepper into a bowl. Grate cheese into a bowl. Mix filling. Scoop filling over seams of dough, forming a circle.

Beginning in center, lift one dough triangle across mixture. Continue alternating with outer triangle, slightly overlapping to form wreath. Tuck last end under first.

Separate egg over bowl. Beat egg white lightly; brush over dough.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Viola! Turkey leftover Magic!

Gobble Gobble,
