Turkey Cranberry Mini Crescents

I'm sure many of you will be looking for new recipes to use up your leftover turkey after Thanksgiving. I know I always am.

I found this recipe from the Pillsbury website and I tried it out tonight. It was super easy, quick and delicious! Only 30 minutes to make- 10 to prep and 20 to bake. :)

2 packages of Pillsbury Big and Buttery Crescent Rolls (generic brand is fine too)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 cups cooked & chopped turkey (or chicken)
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup dried cranberries (craisins)
1 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese*

*I completely left the swiss cheese out (because I forgot to buy some-ha!), but the recipe was still delicious. I'm sure they would be just as delicious with the cheese.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
On a cookie sheet, unroll and arranged 1 roll of crescent rolls.
In a large bowl, mix turkey, cheese, mayo, mustard, cranberries, and celery until well blended.
Spoon about 3-5 tablespoons of turkey mixture onto the center of the crescents.
Unroll the last roll of crescents and arrange on top of turkey mixture.
Lightly press the seams together to seal the crescents together.
Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until crescents are golden brown.

This is what the mixture looks like inside. Kind of like a chicken salad.

Makes 8 crescent pockets, sandwiches, or whatever you want to call them. ;)
