Serves 8


2 Cups chopped cooked Shelton's Turkey

1 Can (16.3 oz) canned refrigerated biscuits

1 Cup leftover mashed potatoes

1/2 Cup leftover mashed sweet potatoes

1 1/2 Cups leftover Stuffing

1 1/2 Cups Turkey Gravy

(psst, if you don't have this stuff leftover, no worries, just add what you do have from your holiday meal)


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Chop Turkey into 1/4 inch pieces and set aside

Mix mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes in a bowl, set aside.

Roll one biscuit out to about 7 inches on a floured surface, keeping it as circular as possible.  Spread 2 Tablespoons of the potato mixture on one half of the rolled out biscuit.  Even distribute 3 Tablespoons of the chopped Turkey on the potato mixture.  Evenly distribute 2 Tablespoons of the stuffing over the Turkey.  Drizzle about 2 Tablespoons of gravy over the stuffing.  

Fold the biscuit over and pinch the edges together to form a seal.  

Repeat the process for the remaining biscuits and fillings.   (8 total)

Arrange pockets 1 inch apart on a baking sheet.  cut a 1 inch X on the top of each pocket to allow for steam to escape.  Bake on the center rack until the pocket is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
