Turkey and Dressing Hand Pies

Yep, you read that right.  I put some turkey and cornbread dressing in pie dough then baked them up. I’ve shared a couple of other leftover turkey dishes that you can make and my favorites always include dressing in the mix.

Ok, let’s be honest here. I would eat anything if it had dressing with it. I eat dressing right out of the pan. Sometimes I’ll spread some on bread as soon as it’s out of the oven, fold it over and call it a snack. I can’t help myself! I love the stuff.

These little hand held pies are a new favorite. I drizzled a little leftover gravy on top once I pulled them out of the oven and ate it right up. If you have any turkey and dressing left over, go ahead and put them in some pie dough and bake it up. You’ll be glad you did.

Turkey Hand Pies

Turkey and Dressing Hand Pies

Ingredients:

Leftover turkey, shredded
Leftover cornbread dressing
Refrigerated Pie dough
Leftover gravy

Instructions:

Preheat oven according to pie dough instructions.

If you don’t have a hand pie maker, you can cut the pie dough into rectangles or circles.

Spread some cornbread dressing on the bottom of pie dough. Add shredded turkey.

Place another piece of pie dough on top and crimp with a fork or place in the hand pie maker.

Bake according to pie dough instructions or until dough is baked.

Take out of the oven and drizzle with warmed turkey gravy.

Cornbread Dressing

Ok. My absolute favorite thing about Thanksgiving, well besides being with my family, is the cornbread dressing. Yep, definitely the cornbread dressing. The holidays would not be the same without some of my momma’s homemade cornbread dressing.

For years I never attempted to make her dressing because I just knew I couldn’t get it to taste just like hers. Finally I watched her making it and knew I could do it. I’ve been making it for a few years now and every time I make it just a little different.

This one is my go-to recipe though. It’s easy to make and you really can’t mess it up as long as you don’t go crazy with the poultry seasoning. I could eat this for days. And I have!

Cornbread Dressing

Cornbread Dressing

Ingredients:

2 packages Jiffy cornbread mix
2 eggs
2/3 c milk
3 Tbsp butter
1 c onion, chopped
1 c celery, chopped
1 can cream of mushroom
2 c chicken stock
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning

Instructions:

Bake cornbread according to package instructions which includes the eggs and milk. You can make this cornbread a day in advance and let sit overnight.

Once you are ready to make the dressing, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add butter to a medium sauté pan. Let melt. Add celery and onion. Add about 2 Tbsp of chicken stock and let cook for 5-7 minutes. Set aside.

Crumble baked cornbread into a large mixing bowl. Add celery, onion and butter mixture. Pour in cream of mushroom and remaining chicken stock. Mix together. Season with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.

Taste and add more salt and pepper as needed.

Pour mixture into a 9×13 pan. Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes.

Note: if you have the giblets from the turkey, boil them until cooked. Chop up and place in the dressing.

Turkey Salad Cup

Turkey Salad Cup

One of my favorite lunch time meals is a pre-packaged meal from my local grocery store. It’s a container of chicken salad, crackers, grapes and cheese. I’m not gonna lie, I usually buy one of these every week. Sometimes more. But I hardly ever make chicken salad at home because I rarely have leftover chicken. […]
