Instructions Checklist

  • Mix turkey with 1/3 cup chives in a small bowl.

  • Working with one round at a time, spoon about 1 1/2 tbsp. turkey on half of the dough, then spoon about 2 tsp. cranberry sauce onto turkey (toward center). Brush with a bit of egg wash, fold round into a half circle, and press edges together with tines of a fork. Repeat with remaining dough and fillings, then brush each empanada with egg wash.

  • Bake empanadas until evenly golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Reheat gravy and sprinkle it with remaining chives. Serve empanadas warm, with gravy.
