Turkey Bundles

Torrey Moseley


My sister taught me how to make these little gems. They are handy, portable little meat pies. She uses ground beef, I use ground turkey. She forms hers by hand...I cheat and use a muffin tin. Both ways are yummy. Frozen bread/roll dough makes this dish SUPER easy. I thought about calling them "Meat Muffins" but opted against it.

1 lb
ground turkey (or beef)
2 Tbsp
1 medium
onion, chopped
1/2 lb
fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 can(s)
condensed cream of whatever-you-have-on-hand soup
1 to 2 c
grated yellow or white semi-hard cheese (your choice)
1 pkg
frozen roll dough (24 rolls)
1 to 2
eggs (for egg wash at end)

Directions Step-By-Step

Thaw roll dough, spread out, on lightly greased cookie sheet. Cover with damp towel to prevent drying. NOTE** make SURE you're using UNBAKED frozen DOUGH...and NOT the pre-baked frozen stuff.
Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 dF.
Sautee onion and mushrooms in skillet with evoo until carmelized. Please don't leave the mushrooms in the "grey and limp" stage...continue cooking them until they brown.
Add raw ground meat to cooked onions and shrooms and continue cooking until meat is cooked through. If using beef, drain off excess grease.
Stir in UNDILUTED soup, straight out of the can. Stir well. Remove from heat.
Take two pieces of thawed dough and stretch each out, either by hand or with rolling pin on floured surface, until each one is about 4 inches all around. Then form one of them into bottom of one of the muffin tin cups so that it comes to above the top edge.
Fill GENEROUSLY (heaping) with cooked meat mixture and press blop of grated cheese on top (cheddar, colby, jack, muenster, swiss, provolone, mozzarella...whatever you have on hand).
Take the other flattened piece of dough and create a "lid" for the meat/cheese filling. Crimp top and bottom dough edges together with fingers. Don't worry if you can't "seal" them shut. Even if the top and bottom dough don't connect all the way around, amazingly they come out in one piece.
Beat egg in small bowl. Brush entire top of each Bundle with egg wash.
Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Gently remove from muffin tin and place on plate.
