Turkey Turnover

This is the go-to recipe for all the leftover turkey. A flaky crust surrounds this great combination of turkey and cheese all melted together. This is a very versatile recipe, chicken or ham can be substituted for the turkey or a combination of turkey and ham or ham and chicken.This is a great meal in one with a lot of flavor, just add a salad and enjoy!
