The All-in-1 Thanksgiving Roll

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

OK.... so it is the day after turkey day and you got a fridge full of left overs and you don't feal like cooking much... what to do, what to do. That's when you reach into the freezer for a sheet of Puff Pastry dough!

 

First off here is a gratis shot of the deviled teridactyle eggs we made on turkey day - none of them survived. frown.gif

Any way.... on to the show. After the puff pastry had thawed a bit and was workable I added a base layer of mashed potato.

Followed by the remains of the smoked guest of honor - TURKEY!

Then topped off with a generous portion of monteray jack cheese and some stuffing. The stuffing had craysins in it that gave a nice sweet flavor when you got a bite of them.

Into the oven at 375 till the puff pastry gets nice and golden brown!

Served up with some of my world famouse gravy! The kids actually went to school and told the cafateria gals that they needed to learn how to make gravy from me because theirs was not very good.... lol.

Johnny! You are the man! That does look amazing. I have some puff pastry in the freezer, but no leftovers. icon_cry.gif I would love try your gravy recipe. I think we should start a thread just about gravy/sauces and all contribute their favorite recipe.

I could go for a slice or 10 of that right about now.

Thanks everybody! Glad you all liked it. I do find puff pastry can be a great way to throw stuff together in a hurry.

Nothing to special about my gravy's. Main thing I do make sure to use de-fatted drippings for that really nice meaty flavor. For a beef gravy I also add about 1/4-1/2 Cup of red wine, for turkey or chicken gravys I do about 1/4 Cup of white wine.The wine gives it a nice depth and body that is hard to duplicate. Seasonings are the usuall suspects salt, pepper, gralic powder.

That looks fantastic!  We're having our ThanksTurkey Day meal tomorrow.  I can tell you what's on the menu for later in the week!

 

Thanks for the tip!

Brian
