What did you do with all that turkey?

Well, I looked at my turkey leftovers and decided to make a version of roll-ups.  I believe the original recipe came from my Mom’s Welcome Wagon cookbook from Central Pennsylvania and was called “Chicken Roll-ups”.  The original recipe uses chicken, cheddar cheese, crescent rolls, and cream of chicken or mushroom soup.  I decided to take a Mexican twist on the original.  I used turkey leftovers with a Pepper Jack/ Cheddar cheese and skipped the soup in favor of guacamole.  How can you go wrong with dough, cheese, and turkey?

  • Spray pan with cooking spray
  • Cut up turkey into small pieces and combine with shredded cheese
