    This was the first time I tried this recipe and it was awesome! I used mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, and turkey & chicken and they didn't disappoint. It takes 20 min. of prep and 20 min to cook when I made them. I used jar gravy to dip them in and they were great!  -  30 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy and delicious. I don't know why I never thought of doing this before. They remind me of my father's pasties of ground beef and potatoes but with a holiday twist. So so good! Thanks for sharing, Anna.  -  27 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
