Holiday Dinner Stuffed Pastry Puffs


* 4 cups green bean casserole, leftover
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1/2 cup stock, either turkey or chicken
* 1 to 2 cups leftover turkey, shredded
* 2 standard puff pastry sheets, thawed if frozen


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly oil or spray a 6 cup muffin tin.
2. Put the leftover green bean casserole in a large bowl along with the milk, stock, and turkey and gently toss until combined.
3. Lay both puff pastries on a working surface and cut out 12 (4 inch) circles.
4. Lightly press a pastry circle into the muffin tin forming a cup all the way up the sides and over the edge on top.
5. Poke little holes along the bottom and up the sides of the pastry.
6. Spoon filling into each muffin cup so it comes up just below the top of the muffin cup.
7. Lay a pastry circle on top of each muffin cup and pinch together the pastry from the bottom onto the pastry on the top, sealing the edges all around, like a pie.
8. Cut a tiny hole in the top to release steam as it bakes.
9. Put muffin tin on a baking sheet and put in preheated oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling hot. Serve immediately. Makes 6 single servings.


When you want to use up the holiday leftovers, but don't want the same old plate served day after day, this is a great idea that is fun and delicious.

You can really use any leftovers, but I like using the green bean casserole because they sometimes get relegated to just getting heated up in the microwave over and over again. This is a nice way to use up this dish without getting bored. And this classic should NEVER get boring!

If you want to change the flavors or textures up a bit try adding some Parmesan cheese or toasted chopped nuts. Either will make these snacks almost unrecognizable from the dishes on the holiday table.

This recipe makes a nice snack but can also serve as a lunch or light dinner.
