  • Up to 2 cups leftover turkey, diced
  • 1 package refrigerator crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup leftover cranberry relish or sauce
  • 1/2 cup leftover stuffing or dressing
  • Up to 2 cups leftover gravy
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Unfold refrigerator crescents. Smear with desired amount of cranberry sauce (1 to 3 teaspoons).
  • Add diced turkey and leftover stuffing, approximately 1 heaping teaspoon each.
  • Roll up crescents and arrange in baking dish.
  • Heat milk and leftover gravy; pour over crescents.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned.


  • This recipe is inspired by a blog favorite - Chicken Crescent Bake
  • These crescents are completely customizable.  Stuff with a combination of leftover turkey, cranberry sauce, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, etc. 
  • Resist the urge to over-stuff these leftover turkey crescents. 
  • Depending on the how thick your leftover gravy is, you may want to dilute it with a little more or a little less than the 1/4 cup milk.  If it's super thick, go up to a 1/2 cup. 
  • If you don't have leftover gravy, substitute it for a 10.5 ounce can of cream of chicken soup.  Be sure to still dilute it with warm milk.  Looking for some more leftover turkey recipes?  Here's a whole post dedicated to just that!
