Thanksgiving in a Blanket

The only food tradition surer than turkey on Thanksgiving is having Thanksgiving leftovers for lunch or dinner the following day—or longer. Instead of revisiting T-Day dinner between two slices of cold bread or in a soggy microwaved mess on a plate, try this simple Thanksgiving in a Blanket. In fact, it's so easy it's not really even a "recipe," and the only additional ingredient you'll need is a tube of your favorite crescent roll dough.

Yields1 Serving

 ¼ cup thanksgiving turkey
 ¼ cup stuffing
 ¼ cup mashed potatoes
 ¼ cup cranberry sauce
 1 Pillsbury package crescent rolls

1

First, preheat your oven to 375°, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Separate the triangles of crescent roll dough, and lay them out on a lightly-floured work surface.

2

Next, stack all of your Thanksgiving leftovers on the base of the dough triangle.

3

Roll each piece of dough up, and give it a little smoosh to make sure the dough sticks to itself and keeps your leftovers contained. Then place your rolls on your baking sheet, spaced evenly apart.

4

Bake the rolls for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the dough is golden-brown. While they cook, heat up some leftover gravy to use as a dipping sauce.

5

Serve warm, and enjoy!
