A Different Approach

To Leftover Turkey

I don't know about you but I'm not big on turkey soup or turkey tettrazini or turkey casserole, etc. I decided to try a slightly healthier dish to use up some of our Thanksgiving leftovers. I decided to use my Easy "Greek" Spinach Pie as the base recipe. 

I did not have any phyllo dough to use so my substitution was to use 2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations:

(a favorite short cut of mine and no, I am not receiving 
any reimbursement for this product endorsement)

 I used one can of Pillsbury Recipe Creations 
for the bottom of my spinach pie.
I rolled it out and placed it in a greased pie dish.  
Just before adding my filling, I baked the crust 
for approximately 8 minutes at 375 degrees

Next, after adding the filling, top with the 2nd can
of rolled Recipe Creations dough.

Using tines of a fork,
poke the crust all over to allow steam to escape.
Brush the crust with lightly beaten egg white,
reserving the yolk to fry up and serve to the dog.
(Daisy's not spoiled at all, is she!)

 Place in a 375 degree oven.
Bake until a golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.

Slice, serve and enjoy. I know we did!

If you top it with peanut butter & serve it with coffee, you have my Black Friday dinner.

Stopping by from SITS...this looks yummy! I, too, love using the tubed crescent rolls as a short cut, it works with so many sweet and savory recipes. I may have to try this, it looks a great way to get my guys to actually eat spinach. Thanks for sharing! Happy Saturday sharefest!

That looks amazing! BUT, I do wonder how you Americans cope with TWO turkey based celebrations in the space of a month! Crazy!
You all sound from SITS like you're having such a good time, whereas here it's just another weekend in November. I've really enjoyed joining in vicariously with your celebrations! Happy Thanksgiving, and of course Happy Eid to to anyone Muslim reading this xx

Stopping by from SITS!

I adore spinach, and my mom always insists on making it Christmas morning in a quiche. I don't like quiche! But I love this recipe because I think I can persuade my mom to make it instead of the quiche :)
