Black Friday came a little early around here….

And I do not mean the shopping……. I mean the leftovers!

Remember the Saucy Cranberry Chicken?

Yeah, I stuffed it into some puff pastry dough with lots of yummy cheese! Then baked them till they were flakey and perfect!

Blue Cheese!

I used the chicken and cranberry sauce from the Saucy Cranberry Chicken, but leftover turkey and cranberry sauce from your Thanksgiving meal will work just as well! It is the perfect way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers!

It is a combination of sweet and savory cranberry sauce, meat and cheese and it is amazing! The blue cheese works surprising well with the cranberries, and the spinach adds color and flavor! It is the perfect easy meal after a long day of shopping, cleaning, or digesting!

Here is this weak’s meal plan. We had a few unplanned dinners last week so there are some are roll overs.

Use your leftover Thanksgiving turkey and cranberry sauce to make this delicious pastry. The sweet and savory cranberry sauce balances the rich pastry.

Ingredients

2 cups shredded turkey or chicken
1/2 cup Cranberry Sauce
10-12 Oz Frozen Spinach, thawed and drained
8 Oz Blue Cheese, Crumbled
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded (optional)
1 box (2 sheets) Puff Pastry, thawed
1 Egg, beaten

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl lightly mix the turkey, cranberry sauce, spinach, and blue cheese.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Roll each sheet into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle; cut each into 2 pieces. Transfer to a greased baking sheet.
  3. Spoon turkey mixture onto each pastry. Top with an 1/8 cup cheddar cheese if desired.
  4. Lightly brush pastry edges with water. Bring long sides over filling, pinching seams and ends to seal. Turn pastries seam side down. Cut small slits into pastry. Brush tops with egg.
  5. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Tieghan Says:

* To Freeze: Once fully assembled cover and freeze for 3 to 4 hours. Once frozen store in a ziplock freezer bag for up to six months. When ready to bake remove from the freezer and allow to thaw for 30 minutes. Bake as directed.
