Why I Love This Recipe

This is a great "what are we going to do with all this leftover turkey?" recipe. It won me a prize in a local newspaper cook off a few years ago.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
3 T. milk
1 T. lemon juice
2 C. cubed cooked turkey
1/2 C. finely chopped green pepper
2 T. chopped green onions
1 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 C. chopped walnuts
6 large croissants, split


In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, milk and lemon juice until smooth. Stir in the turkey, green pepper, onions, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper. Refrigerate. Just before serving, stir in the walnuts. Spoon about 1/2 C. filling into each croissant. Serve with homemade cranberry sauce, or slices of jellied cranberry sauce. Serves 3-6 people.
