Crunchy Turkey Crescent Pockets
As Steve Harvey always says, “Boy, we gotta a good one for you today!”
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!
- 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)
- Cream the softened butter and cream cheese together and mix in the turkey.
- Separate the crescents and add about ¼ cup of the meat mixture to the wide part of the roll.
- Roll up each being sure to enclose the filling and seal.
- Coat each pocket completely with the melted butter and then roll into the bread crumbs that have been seasoned with the cilantro and cumin.
- 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!
