Holiday Recipe - Great for turkey leftovers
This actually makes a good appetizer for a holiday party.
Turkey Cranberry Wreath
2-8 oz pkgs crescent rolls
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 cups cooked turkey
1/2 cup sliced celery
3 Tbs fresh snipped parsley
1/2 cup dried cranberries or cranraisins
1 cup shredded swiss or monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup walnuts or almonds
1 egg white
1. Preheat over at 375*F. Unroll crescent rolls and seperate into 16 triangles. With the wide end of the triangles toward the center of the round cooking pan. Corners of wide ends will touch and points will extend 1 inch
beyond the edge of the pan. (The first 8 rolls should make a full circle. The remaining 8 should be placed in the gaps from the first ring. It would look like a sunburst).
2. In a large bowl, mix mayo, mustard, and black pepper. Chop turkey into bite size pieces. Add turkey, celery, parsley, and cranberries to bowl. Add nuts and cheese; mix well. Using a med scoop, scoop filling over seams of dough, forming a circle.
3. Beginning at the top, lift one dough triangle and lay over the mixture. Continue alternating outer strips, slightly overlapping to form wreath. Tuck last end under first.
4. In a small bowl, beat egg white lightly. Brush over dough. Bake in pre-heated oven 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Every choice we make can either enhance our Spirit or drain it.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ― Brené Brown
