Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely chopped roasted turkey
  • 3/4 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup cut green beans, cooked

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 6 ingredients. Season with desired amount of salt and pepper.

  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll each piecrust. Lightly roll each into a 12-inch circle. Cut each piecrust into 6 circles using a 4-inch round cutter. Place about 3 Tbsp. turkey mixture just below center of each dough circle. Fold dough over filling, pressing and folding edges to seal.

  3. Arrange pies on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with egg, and, if desired, sprinkle with poppy seeds.

  4. Bake at 400° for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with warm gravy.
