I’m not sure about anyone else, but my refrigerator is fully stocked with over 5 pans full of food from our Thanksgiving feast. I know for a fact that many of us get tired of eating turkey and potatoes for the next week and a half, so I came up with something to make that will definitely kick your leftovers up a notch!
Here are my Thanksgiving Dinner-In-One Rolls
Everyone’s Thanksgiving dinner probably doesn’t look the same, so choose your favorite side dishes, take out that turkey, and grab a pack of crescent rolls from the store to make these bad boys. I know I personally had no energy to whip up homemade crescents, so sue me for using the store bought rolls #sorrynotsorry.
I opted for the garlic mashed potatoes, the leftover cheese cubes, obviously the turkey, gravy, and I had leftover garlic cilantro olive oil from the potatoes. You can easily use sweet potatoes if that’s what you have, even some Mac and cheese if you want to get real creative.
Spread a layer of the potatoes into the crescent dough. This is the first layer because it would’ve been messy to close the rolls with a scoop of potatoes on top. Then add your turkey, a drizzle of gravy, and your cheese choice.
Take each corner of the dough and bring to the center to secure the stuffing inside.
Now that you’ve successfully sealed these little rolls from heaven, time to add the garlic, cilantro olive oil mixture on top.
I also melted a tablespoon of unsalted butter and drizzled a little on each one after I added the olive oil mixture. Bake them for 10-12 minutes, or until the crescents are golden.
Let them cool for 5 minutes. Then enjoy!!
