Turkey Turnovers for Two

I make this dish often after the holidays when there's leftover turkey in the refrigerator or freezer. It's a hearty meal for the two of us and simple to prepare. -Julie Wagner, Northville, Michigan
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup cubed cooked turkey
  • 1/2 cup cooked peas or vegetable of your choice
  • 4 teaspoons sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons diced pimientos
  • Dash each salt, pepper and garlic powder
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted or chicken gravy


  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Stir in the turkey, peas, almonds, onion, parsley, pimientos, salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine biscuit mix and water until a soft dough forms. On a floured surface, knead gently 5-6 times or until dough is no longer sticky. Gently roll into an 11x7-in. rectangle; cut in half. Spoon half of the turkey mixture onto each. Carefully fold pastry over filling; seal edges tightly with a fork. Brush tops with butter.
  • Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, heat soup and serve with turnovers.
