This recipe for Thanksgiving bundles would be great to use your Thanksgiving leftovers. I saw it on Good Things Utah (a local television show) yesterday and decided to make it last night for dinner. The recipe was made by viewer Amber Gillespie. Now as the recipe is, it made way too much filling for just 2 rolls of crescent dough. Luckily I had a couple more rolls of them in the fridge.
I ended up making 24 of them and still had leftover filling. So I cooked them all and put half in the freezer for another night when I need a quick dinner. So adjust accordingly, either make more bundles or less filling. I also didn’t add any gravy to the filling, I just served it on top. The whole family loved these and I think they would have even been better with leftover Thanksgiving turkey in place of the ground turkey. I may also try to use the 2 packages of crescent rolls next time and make it into a ring. I would think if you make it that way you could get more filling into it.
Now, I’m not exactly sure how Amber shaped these on the show, but this is how I did it. I put the filling in the rectangle and rolled it into a log.
Then I shaped them into a U.
Then when I put them in the muffin tin, I sealed to top of the u together and kind of smashed it into the muffin tin a little.
This is how much filling was left after making 16 bundles.
This is how much filling was left after making 24 bundles.
