Turkey pockets : Deli turkey

The holidays almost always leave us with turkey that we can eat in the days and weeks to come from our leftovers. These Turkey Pot Pie Pockets are a wonderful and simple supper meal to add to your rotation if you find yourself in possession of any leftover turkey (or even chicken) in the kitchen.
The fact that I still eat this lunch after all these years is a strong indication of how delicious it is. The Turkey Pot Pie Pockets are created with puff pastry, and they are a pretty simple way to reuse any leftover chicken or turkey from a previous meal. The pockets are hand pies, so no forks or knives are needed to eat them, which is great if you have children.
Are you ready to get started?! First things first, let’s have a look at the list of ingredients:

Softened Cream cheese, I used an 8-oz block. (I used low fat).

1 Tbsp.Of softened butter.

1 Tbsp.Of melted butter.

Cooked shredded turkey (OR chicken); I used 2 cups.

¼ Tsp.Of salt.

¼ Tsp.Of pepper.

1 Tbsp.Of whole milk.

1 Tbsp.Of grated onion.

Thawed puff pastry; you’ll need a 17-oz Pkg.


1st Step

Turn the temperature in the oven up to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet that is extra big or two smaller baking sheets with cooking spray and line them with foil. Set aside.

2nd Step

Combine the cream cheese, softened butter, milk, and chopped onion in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on low speed until smooth. Fold in turkey, salt, and pepper.

3rd Step

On a surface dusted with flour, unroll a single sheet of puff pastry. Make the puff pastry into a bigger square by flattening it out with a rolling pin (measuring about 11 inches x 11 inches).

4th Step

Cut the big piece of puff pastry into four squares. Place between a quarter and a third of a cup’s worth of the turkey mixture in the middle of each square.

5th Step

After dipping the tip of your finger in a small dish of water, run your finger down the border of each square. This will assist to ensure that the triangles are completely sealed.

6th Step

In order to make a triangle, fold the square in half from corner to corner so that it covers the turkey mixture. To secure the edges of each square, run a fork around the perimeter of each one. Place the turkey pot pie pockets on the baking sheet that has been prepared.

7th Step

Repeat the process with the following puff pastry sheet and the leftover turkey filling. Furthermore, brush the tops of the triangles with melted butter.

8th Step

Cook the Turkey Pot Pie Pockets in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until they have a golden brown color. If desired, serve with gravy on the side.
