Turkey Parcels - Two Ways
This recipe was sent to us by Michelle, one of our online blogger mums. Her challenge was to cook a family meal using turkey leftovers. Here's what she thought:
Utterly Scrummy
What we thought:
These are fab for a light lunch or snacks as you can make them up and put them in the fridge until you are ready to bake them. You can vary the flavour according to what you have, leftovers
or fresh ingredients, and they are delicious, simple and quick to make. 
Essential Ingredient:
Leftover turkey
425g pack puff pastry sheets

For the fillings:

100g cooked turkey finely chopped or shredded

1 - 2 Tblsp mango chutney

1 tsp finely chopped chilli (optional)


100g cooked turkey finely chopped or shredded 1 or 2 tblsp cream cheese

Sprinkling of dried mixed herbs 5p 2 - 3 Tblsp dried cranberries or a dollop of cranberry sauce

To serve:
Serve warm, straight from the oven.
This recipe is tasty, thrifty and a complete doddle to make - what more could you want?!
  1. Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 6/200C/Fan 180C. Unroll the 2 sheets of pastry and cut each one into 3, to get 6 rectangles from two sheets of pastry
  2. Spread either mango chutney or cream cheese onto the pastry strip, leaving a border of about 1cm all the way around
  3. Sprinkle over some of the dried herbs or chilli then pile a tablespoon of the rest of your chosen filling mixture on one end
  4. Fold the pastry over then crimp with a fork to seal it well. Don't forget to make a couple of small holes in the top of each pastry parcel with a fork or knife to allow steam to escape during cooking
  5. Put on a lined baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 6/200C/Fan 180C for 20 minutes. Best served warm from the oven.
