I have wanted to "create" my own recipe for awhile. I'm not quite sure what constitutes making-up a recipe though. Is it throwing random things from your pantry together or following a recipe but tweaking a few things? I don't really know. But it is hard, how do you all do it? As far as I know I've only made a dip recipe before. But I'm pretty sure that I haven't heard or seen anything exactly like this before.
For any of you that know me, I have an addiction to bread! I love it! But I especially love Crescent Rolls. So when I saw the new Crescent Dough Sheets, I knew that I had to use it for something. So I concocted Thanksgiving Bundles! I made the recipe for dinner one night and the hubby loved it (that takes a lot)! Then I took the leftovers to work and they loved them too! One of my co-workers even dreamed about them, so they gotta be good!
Drumroll... here is the recipe:
Makes about 16 bundles
2 rolls of Crescent Dough Sheets
6 oz. Turkey Flavored Stove Top Dressing (plus ingredients to make)
2 Celery Stalks
3 cloves garlic
1 pound ground turkey
.87 oz Gravy (pick your style)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 350. Follow the directions to cook the Stove Top in the microwave. While the Stove Top is cooking, ground the turkey until browned. Cut up the garlic and celery into small pieces. Cook the gravy according to package directions. Combine the ground turkey, celery, garlic, salt and pepper and half of the gravy in a large bowl. Roll out the dough and cut into 2X2 inch squares. Place about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the center of each dough square and fold edges to meet at the top. Place in muffin cups and cook about 13 minutes or until dough is golden brown on top. Serve with remaining gravy, mashed potatoes and a veggie of your choice. You could even grab and apple pie to complete your "Thanksgiving" meal!
