(17) Turkey Hand Pies

Perhaps what I love best about this recipe is that it combines practically all the Thanksgiving leftovers into one handy (ha!) little pastry.  Talk about efficient!  It even puts the gravy to work.  And we all know how that shady gravy likes to turn one night crashing on the couch into a month-long stay.


Savory Hand Pies
from November 2010 Southern Living

1 cup turkey, finely chopped
3/4 cup mashed potatoes
4oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup green peas, cooked
1 carrot, shredded
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
Salt & Pepper
Gravy, warmed


Stir together turkey, potatoes, cream cheese, peas, carrots, and parsley.


Roll out pie crust and cut into 4″ circles (cut as many circles as possible, re-rolling dough when necessary).  Spoon 3 tablespoons turkey mixture into center of each circle and fold dough over, pressing edges to seal.


Place little meat pies on baking sheet and bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.


Serve with warmed gravy and mixed green salad, dressed with oil & vinegar.
