Got Leftovers?


We hope everyone had a fun Thanksgiving!  If your homes are anything like ours, you have plenty of food left over.  If you don’t feel like fixing the same plate you had last night, what about making yourself some Thanksgiving Leftover Hand Pies?

Why is this recipe such a good idea?  Because everyone loves food that you can eat with your hands and pie crust is pretty easy to come by, especially in the holiday season.

What You’ll Need:

1 package of 2 ready to roll pie crusts (mine were Pillsbury)
Leftovers of:
Turkey (cut into small peices),
***You can also substitute the turkey with ham or any other entree you made

What to Do:
Just cut the pie dough into 4 or 5 even squares and spread a little mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing onto one side of the square. Each pie can hold about 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling. Then fold the dough over to make a triangle and press the sides with a fork. I brush mine with a little egg wash and bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until they are starting to brown.
