I had a dream ...

There are two of us. I cooked a thirteen pound turkey for two of us. Great ... I love the whole freshly cooked, first night of turkey, stuffing, gravy, et. al. The vexing problem is what to do with all that turkey when you don't want to - can't face another turkey sandwich, pot pie or bowl of steaming turkey soup.

In the night ... the wee hours when I am still awake and the Mr is softly snuzzling beside me, it came to me. I had tomatoes, cilantro, onion, cream and a variety of other cheeses, plus a couple of cans of crescent rolls. I could do something with all this!

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 4 large calzone


  • 2 c turkey, cubed
  • 1 c green onions, rough chopped
  • ½ c fresh cilantro, rough chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, rough chopped
  • 1 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ c Monterey Jack cheese, shred
  • ½ c cheddar cheese, shred
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 t chili powder
  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Place all ingredients - using only ¼ c of the shredded cheeses - in food processor and pulse until it is the consistency you desire. (I like it a bit chunky.)
  3. Unroll each can of crescent rolls and pinch seams to form four large rectangles.
  4. Spread ¼ of processed mixture on lower half of each rectangle. Fold over and pinch closed making an envelope.
  5. Place calzones on grease a cookie sheet. Sprinkle each with the rest of the shredded cheese (I like to sprinkle a bit of garlic powder, as well.)
  6. Place in 400° oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until a lovely brown.
  7. Let sit for a couple of minutes and remember - the filling will be hot!

      Okay, I'm more than a touch biased, here, since you always test your creations--notice I refrained from using 'concoctions'?--on me. This one blew me away, and I'm no fan of turkey, first run or 212th run. In fact, I thought it had tuna in it!

      Oh, yeah, those two "the cats ate"? Truth be told I froze 'em and hid 'em deep in the freezer!
