Cranberry Walnut Turkey Crescent Ring

Cranberry Walnut Turkey Crescent Ring


  • 2 C Diced Turkey (cooked)
  • Sliced Swiss Cheese
  • 1/2 C Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 C Chopped Celery
  • 1/2 C Chopped Onions
  • 1/4 C Chopped Walnuts
  • 1/2 C Mayonnaise
  • 2 TBS Mustard (Dijon or Honey Mustard are nice)
  • 2 TBS Fresh Parsley (or 1 TBS Dried)
  • 2 pkg crescent rolls (8 oz each)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Egg White
  • Water


  • Mix turkey, celery, onion, cranberry, walnut, mayonnaise, mustard and parsley in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lightly oil a pizza pan or stone.
  • Open crescent rolls & separate into triangles. Place triangles with the wide ends about 3 inches in from the edge of the pan and the points hanging off the pan. The wide edges should overlap--it will resemble a "sun".
  • Spoon the turkey mixture onto the ring.
  • Cut or tear cheese into rectangles and place over the turkey filling.
  • Fold the points of the crescent rolls over the filling and gently tuck under the ring.
  • Beat egg white with a tsp or so of water and brush over the crescent roll part of the ring.
  • Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes--the crescent rolls should be golden brown.
  • Variations
  • Instead of turkey use leftover or canned chicken.
  • Leave out the walnuts, or use pecans instead.
  • Substitute raisins or cut up grapes for the dried cranberries.

I made this recipe using Great Value Crescent Rolls and leftover Thanksgiving turkey.  I believe this recipe was initially from “Pampered Chef”–but I was given it by a friend and adapted it for my family’s tastes and the ingredients available.

Note:  This post was created in support of a post for Great Value, to be published tomorrow, but this post itself is not sponsored
