Type of DishThanksgiving Leftovers


  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) fresh cranberries
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
  • Finely grated zest and juice of ½ orange
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) butter
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped onion
  • 1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped skinned roasted turkey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 box (15 oz/425 g) frozen puff pastry, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, sauté cranberries, sugar, orange zest and orange juice until berries pop. Mash lightly with a fork. Meanwhile, in a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion until tender. Stir in cranberry mixture, turkey, salt and pepper; let cool. Use the puff pastry sheets to form 8 turnovers, using the turkey mixture as filling. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned and puffed.
