Step 1

Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (191 degrees Celsius).

Lay out sheet of crescent roll dough and cut into 8 squares.

Fill the middle of each square with chosen Thanksgiving leftover fillings.

Fold up each corner as shown in the photos to make each dumpling. Make sure to pinch the edges closed so no gravy or cheese leaks outs during baking.

Bake for 13 minutes until golden brown.

When removed from the oven, spread a small amount of butter on each dumpling to melt and sprinkle with any seasoning mixture on hand for a little extra flavor.

There are many options available for you creative types! One of my favorite combinations features roast beef or ham with mashed potatoes, gravy, and shredded cheddar cheese. Another great taste sensation includes leftover turkey breast, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce, and a little turkey gravy.
