Crunchy Turkey Crescent Pockets

As Steve Harvey always says, “Boy, we gotta a good one for you today!”

Make plenty...because they go fast!

Make plenty…because they go fast!

With a little turkey left over in the frig and all the other ingredients needed for these little sandwich pockets, I was on a roll, literally! Coating these little morsels in melted butter,  followed by a nice coating of bread crumbs before hitting the oven, made them soooo very moist and tender they just melted in your mouth! It was almost impossible to eat them slowly so you could savor the tastiness and I found I wanted to just devour them quickly but did manage to hold myself at bay!

Crunchy Turkey Crescent Pockets
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 6 oz whipped cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped jalapeno peppers, more or less to your taste
  • 16 oz chopped, cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 pkg crescent rolls
  • Melted butter for coating
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs
  • Dried cilantro and cumin powder to taste (I used about 2 teaspoons of cilantro and 1 teaspoon of cumin)
  1. Cream the softened butter and cream cheese together and mix in the turkey.
  2. Separate the crescents and add about ¼ cup of the meat mixture to the wide part of the roll.
  3. Roll up each being sure to enclose the filling and seal.
  4. Coat each pocket completely with the melted butter and then roll into the bread crumbs that have been seasoned with the cilantro and cumin.
  5. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Just happened to have some homemade cole slaw left over it was a great side to an already super sandwich and with our temps peaking at 100 degrees or more in the afternoons, who feels like doing much cooking either inside or on the grill anyway………….Enjoy everyone!

Mexican Noodle Skillet

This week has been a bad week for posting as our computer connections seem to be screwed up and I am going to try to get this out today. Guess that’s what happens when you live out in the boonies like we do. We live quite a few miles from the source of our internet and although our phone company is working on the problem, this week has been horrid trying to pull any service in! We do have high speed but apparently, so many people have linked in between us and our source, it has slowed us down in a big way. It seems to be working right now so let me get this recipe in real quick, you know just in case………..

Jingles!   Clean up on isle 6...

Jingles! Clean up on aisle 6!!!

I forgot, here’s my oops for the day! Wanted to make cornbread to go with this dish, was getting ingredients out of the frig and set the eggs on the counter behind me while I got out some other things I needed. Next thing I heard was splat and knew immediately without looking that I had better grab another egg! Cats got most of the raw egg and dog got to do a cleanup on aisle 6!!!!!!
