Turkey and Gravy Baskets

Take advantage of convenience items to put a special entree on the table even when time is tight. Our Test Kitchen combined fresh veggies with packaged cooked turkey and gravy, then spooned the colorful mixture into puff pastry shells from the freezer section for a pretty presentation. TIP: This is also a great way to use up holiday leftovers. Use 2 cups leftover turkey plus 1 cup gravy as a substitute for the 1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated turkey breast slices in gravy.

    Very good baseline recipe. The sky is the limit as to what you want to add to your pastry shells! Two other versions I've tried with great success is, one, to place a buttered slice of bread in a large muffin tin with buttered side facing the pan. The bread gets a lovely crunchy toasted exterior with the turkey and veggies on the inside! I also do a similar thing with the large muffin tin or popover pan. I take cold stuffing and press it up against the side of the pan openings and fill. Both of these modifications are baked at 350 degrees until filling is hot or bread is browner. One note about all 3 of these: when it says 4 servings, I would say it would be for a ladies lunch type serving at best. One serving will not fill up a man or a teenage boy.
