Ham, Turkey, and Cheddar Turnovers for #SundaySupper

Ham, Turkey and Cheddar Turnovers | Magnolia Days

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.
