If you're lucky enough to have Thanksgiving leftovers or, simply in the mood for holiday flavors, this cheesy Turkey Cranberry Crescent Ring is just what the doctor ordered.
Turkey Cranberry Crescent Ring
Crescent rolls are so fun to work with in a variety of ways and they're no less versatile during the holidays. I use them for appetizers such as bacon spinach crescent pinwheels, snacks like my chicken bacon ranch crescent bombs or holiday brunch Hawaiian pineapple coconut crescent braid. You can use them to make this crescent ring to repurpose leftover turkey or use deli turkey for a tasty starter.
Helpful Tips for Making Turkey Cranberry Crescent Ring
- Crescent rolls are very forgiving. If they tear, simply pinch the dough back together.
- You may find it helpful to place a small bowl or ramekin in the center of the pan to help keep uniformity when forming the dough into a circle.
- This recipe makes 8 servings. You can easily double the amount by using 2 tubes of crescent rolls to form a larger ring.
- Use thinly sliced leftover turkey or deli turkey for this recipe.
- This crescent ring can be fully assembled, covered and chilled until baking. Bring to room temperature, brush with butter and bake.
