Turkey Crescent Wreath Recipe

This savory wreath is as pretty to look at as it is to eat! When hosting a get-together the day after Thanksgiving las year, I prepared it using leftover turkey. Everyone enjoyed slices of it and asked for seconds. —Jane Jones of Cedar, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 2 cups diced cooked turkey breast
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise

  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Coat a 14-in. pizza pan with cooking spray.
  • 2. Separate crescent dough into 16 triangles. Place wide end of 1 triangle 3 in. from edge of prepared pan with point overhanging edge of pan. Repeat with remaining triangles along outer edge of pan, overlapping the wide ends (dough will look like a sun when complete). Lightly press wide ends together.
  • 3. Spoon turkey mixture over the wide ends of dough. Fold the points of the triangles over the filling and tuck under wide ends (filling will be visible).
  • 4. Brush with egg white. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 servings.
