DIY: Thanksgiving Leftovers Empanadas

This year, I hosted my very first Thanksgiving! Great company and recipes from friends and family new and old. I thrive on hectic – so this is my kind of holiday.

Now, with the big day gone and a refrigerator full of leftovers, comes creativity. For me, this means Leftovers Empanadas. The idea struck me about a month ago when hosting a dinner party. It’s easy, it’s fried and it’s delicious.

Toss diced turkey, ham, stuffing, green beans and any other leftover dish in a pan until warm. Cut approx. 3 inch circles out of store bought puff pastry. Fill with warmed leftovers and pinch closed to make a half moon. Drop in hot oil until brown flipping once to fully cook. Serve with gravy or cranberry sauce. Die happy. I cannot express how perfect and simple these treats are. If it’s not too late, give it a try.
