    Finally catching up a bit on your blog. This looks like a great recipe for left over Thanksgiving turkey. May have to give it a try. 🙂

    • Oh my goodness! Hi Skirnir, it has been a while. I hope all is well with you and yours. I made these last night with an extra strip of bacon and less cheap — still very good! It is a very versatile recipe.

  2. I normally see turnovers in sweet form, but I’m more a fan of savory foods. Your turkey turnovers look delightful! 🙂

  3. I was just trying to think of some new ways to use leftovers…thank you for sharing this one with us at the HomeMattersParty

  4. Wow! These look fabulous! I can’t wait for Thanksgiving leftovers so I can make up a batch. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us at Merry Monday this week!

  5. These look great! Thanks for sharing with the Delicious Dishes Recipe party!

  6. I made this tonight and hubby and I both enjoyed it. I ended up baking it about 20 minutes. I didn’t understand the direction to “Roll and shape two pie crusts into squares and cut in half along the longest side” as it was a square with equal sides, so which was the longer side? It didn’t matter though as you just fold and pinch how you want it anyway. I added thyme, salt & pepper into the filling as I wanted more flavor with my turkey. I would make this again. Great with a side salad!
