Stuff it, roll it, or wrap it. That was the criteria behind the selection of a recipe. The possibilities seemed endless. Should there be an attempt at making homemade sushi for the first time? Or perhaps turn a favorite sandwich into a wrap? There are burritos, boliche (Cuban stuffed beef roast), Thai basil rolls, and so much more on my to-make list. I finally decided on ham, turkey and cheddar turnovers because puff pastry is involved and that is always a good thing.
Puff pastry and phyllo dough get me every time. The thin flakiness makes an airy crunch unlike almost any other. I’ve made spanakopita or cherry cream cheese bites with phyllo sheets or shells. Turning leftovers into something special is easily done with puff pastry like I did with lingonberry turnovers and these savory ones. The way they puff up when baking is almost like magic.
How are the ham, turkey, and cheddar turnovers? They are flaky on the outside and full of savory goodness on the inside. Chopped ham, turkey, and shredded cheddar cheese are mixed with onion and seasonings to create a flavorful filling. The filling is stuffed inside oh so heavenly puff pastry. Folding the pastry over the filling and sealing it is a challenge. It will seem as if there is too much for each turnover. However, the filling shrinks and the pastry expands while baking so it all works out in the end.

Ham, Turkey, and Cheddar Turnovers

- 3 ounces grated cheddar cheese
- 1 garlic clove minced or crushed
- 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
- 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or non-stick liner.
Combine onion, ham, turkey, cheese, garlic, mustard, Worcestershire, and thyme in a large bowl.
On a lightly dusted surface, roll out puff pastry to a 12-inch square. Cut into 4 equal squares.
Divide mixuture among the squares, placing it on one side and leaving about a 1/2-inch border.
Brush edges with water and fold the pasty over to form a triangle.
Press edges to seal. Transfer turnovers to baking sheet.
Baked for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.
