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!

Jalapeno Bites

Need something to warm you up? Jalapeno peppers will do the trick! These little bites are great to munch on during the football games on the weekend and with the weather starting to cool off a bit, I’m really getting in the mood for comfy foods and soups! With dinner already planned for tonight, I almost changed my mind and opted for a nice bowl of chicken soup when I walked outside this morn and a cool breeze slapped me in the face. We still have not seen the sun today, very unusual for here, and I’m hoping this front will clear out so we can cool down tonight into the low sixties. Probably doesn’t sound so cool for some of you, but after the long hot summer we’ve had, it sounds great to me. But as I said, this little bites can warm you up from the inside to handle the chilly weather on the outside!

Bring it on!

Bring it on!


Jalapeno Bites
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3-4 jalapeno peppers, adjust to how hot you want, seeded and minced
  • 1 large sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 lb of cheddar cheese, shredded (I use Kerry Gold)
  • 6 eggs, well beaten
  1. Sprinkle bacon, peppers, onion and garlic into a 9-inch square baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil.
  2. Evenly top with the cheese and pour beaten eggs over all.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until eggs are well set.
  4. Cool before cutting into desired size pieces.


Can’t wait to get my kitchen finished so I can COOK more! Bake these up a day or two before the game and just reheat to serve……….enjoy!
